Artisan Chocolatier Expands Capacity Of Hand-Made Hungarian Sweets
Family-owned sweets maker Stühmer has announced plans to invest Ft 300 million at its plant in Eger, where it produces artisan chocolates and pastries.

The government is supporting the investment, which will raise headcount by 10-12 to over 100, with a Ft 100 million grant, said Foreign Affairs and Trade Minister Péter Szijjártó.

Stühmer will triple its production capacity for hand-made chocolates and double its confectionery output, paving the way for exports to Eastern markets.

The company manufactures more than 150 products and operates seven exclusive brand stores in four cities, CEO Péter Csóll said.

The business, founded in 2004, generated Ft 2.5 billion in revenue in 2019.
