The biggest producer of confectionery and pastry products in Slovakia, Sereď-based I.D.C. Holding, plans to lay the foundation stone of a new production plant in the town within a few days, company co-founder Štefan Kassay announced after a meeting with Agriculture Minister Ľubomír Jahnátek on May 31.

“The production capacities in Sereď will be expanded, and this will include the construction of new production halls and the purchase of new modern technologies,” Kassay said, as quoted by TASR.

General director of the I.D.C. Holding Pavol Kovačič added that the company decided to expand its production capacities as the global business conditions are quickly changing. The company wants to integrate production at one site, and thereby reduce operational costs and maintain jobs, Kovačič added, as reported by TASR.

I.D.C. Holding produces, among other things, the legendary Horalky, a wafer bar with peanut filling and cocoa coating, which is claimed to be the all-time best-selling wafer in former Czechoslovakia and today’s Slovakia. The Sereď-based company also had business representation in the Czech Republic, Poland and Hungary.
