The Croatian Sommelier Club (HSK) is a non-profit Association of citizens operating in Croatia since 1993. The main concern of the HSK is the improvement of the sommelier profession, the continuous intensifying of the conscience on the food & beverage culture and the education of professionals and of the overall population.
That implicitly includes the promotion of the Croatian wine business and the presentation of Croatia throughout the world by emphasizing its positive touristic, catering and wine-making aspects, which is very successfully implemented thanks to competitions and meetings organized by ASI. The HSK achieves its objectives by means of organizing and hosting national competitions, professional and non professional courses, lectures, professional trips in Croatia and abroad, the hosting joint meetings and conventions, publishing of professional publications and other activities.
The HSK is also involved in many national events linked with the culture of food and wine, and in the prime of 1996 it has organized the Annual ASI Assembly in Croatia. In 2001 the HSK President of that time, Mr. Ninoslav Dusper has been appointed by ASI as the head of the ASI Commission for marketing and sponsorship, which has further increased the promotional possibilities of Croatia and its wine business worldwide.The President of the HSK from its founding and until 2005 was Mr. Ninoslav Dusper, and in 2005 Mr. Veljko Ostojić has been elected. The candidates of the HSK regularly take part to the World and the European championships.
