Things speeded up after the end of the spring lockdown and the guild was able to organise all the programmes it had planned for 2021.There was great interest in the courses of Zsuzsa Kemény from the For Artisan Confectionery Foundation. The KOVÁSZ programme – this supports talented young confectioners – continued with great success, 15 young talents acquired new knowledge and skills as part of this. The NEXT GENERATION and sweeTEN 3.0 programmes were also launched – these both play a part in the extending of the Accredited Talent Point of Excellence scheme for next year.

Competitions, preserving the traditions and trade relations

Events organised by the guild included Ice Cream of the Year, Cake of Hungary, Sugar-free Cake of Hungary, the NEK dessert competition and Bejgli of the Year. Mr Erdélyi thanked the many competitors and stressed how creative the competition entries were. He added that the newsletters of the guild were of great help to members in the hard times during the pandemic. The study trips successfully strengthened the trade relations with existing partners and new partners were also acquired, such as word champion baker Ivo Corsini from Poretta Terme and the company Panificio del Foro.
