An Interesting Fact For You:
‘Empire Made’ means that it was made in the British Empire, of which Hong Kong was the last surviving territory.
It’s a hangover from the days when Britain had an Empire, and goods made in the British Empire enjoyed a lower rate of import duty into the UK than goods made in other countries. It was called the ‘Empire Duty Preference Scheme’, and was usually part of a reciprocal trade agreement to help UK exports. Goods from non-Empire countries had to have either the country of origin or ‘foreign’ marked on them.
