According to Eszter Varga, trade marketing and category manager of Dr. Oetker Magyarország Élelmiszer Kft., housewives prefer those baking additives which guarantee success, even if they cost more. These consumers are the target group of Dr. Oetker’s convenient and reliable products Dr. Oetker Vanilla Sugar, Baking Powder and Dry Yeast, Dr. Oetker Pudding Mixes, premium quality Dutch Cocoa for Baking and the very popular Dr. Oetker Home-made Cremeschnitte Cream.

In the winter holiday period demand increases for traditional sweet spices such as cinnamon or clove, and as much as 30-50 percent of annual star anise sales are realised in this period – told Márta Galácz, managing director of Kotányi Hungária Kft. As for Kotányi sweet spice mills, sales of cinnamon, chocolate and caramel-vanilla products rise too in the winter holiday period. Last year Kotányi put a 100-percent plant based gelifier called Agartine on the market. The products Zitronett and Orangina – these can be used instead of lemon and orange peel – are focusing on the growing number of conscious consumers who try to avoid tropical fruits treated with chemicals. In the sweet spice segment the company is concentrating on the KOTÁNYI brand. Between October and December it will be supported with a nationwide and chain-specific prize games.
