According to the preliminary data, confectionery manufacturers are expected to sell a few percent more Easter seasonal sweets than the 822 tons of last year, and a 3-4 percent increase in sales is expected this year – Sánta Sándor, president of the Association of Hungarian Confectionery Manufacturers (Hunbisco) said in an online roundtable discussion on Tuesday.

In the last year before the pandemic, in 2019, the sales revenue of Easter was over 4 billion HUF, which dropped drastically last year: by 20-25 percent to 3.2 billion HUF. However, the confectionery market remained stable in 2020, despite the fact that almost one in four chocolate rabbits or eggs remained on store shelves last year, he said. (MTI)
