the world and the owner of 60 bakery brands on four continents, plans to invest
EUR 1 million in Fornetti before the end of the year and will hire new
employees, Sebastian Gooding, Fornetti’s new managing director, said. reminds that Fornetti employs 800 people in Hungary and a further 500
abroad. It had revenue of nearly HUF 20 billion last year and sold 32,000 tons of
