According to the plans, the third mill of Gyermelyi Zrt. will be started next spring, which will be realized from an investment of 15 million €. It was announced at the jubilee event celebrating the 50th anniversary of the founding of Hungary's market-leader pasta manufacturer, largest egg producer and one of the key milling firms.
Mr. István Nagy, Minister of Agriculture
The Gyermelyi pasta factory is celebrating its 50th birthday this year, production began in September 1971. In the first year the factory sold 4,280 tons of pasta, which means that in 50 years sales have increased tenfold and the company currently employs more than 500 people.
Mr. Béla Tóth, Chairman of the Board
In the last 10 years, Gyermelyi Zrt. spent more than 100 million € on investments. As a result of this the company became the leading pasta manufacturer in Hungary and across the region.
More than 25 new articles have been introduced this year. Thanks to product developments, Gyermelyi has become a competitive player in market segments which previously was dominated by Italian manufacturers.
From 2015 to 2020, the company could triple its sales outside of Hungary. The main focus of export is mostly European countries, especially EU member states, and this is getting more and more important as the opportunities for market expansion in Hungary are already limited.
