The unity of the traditional and the modern means the future
In the early 1990s, the company bought a bakery in Lepsény. Built as a bakery in the 1960s, the plant was in its original design until 2010, when the entire building has been rebuilt. However, in 2018, it was permanently closed to hand over its location to a completely new factory equipped with a modern production line in the 21st century. Gluten-free and sugar-free biscuits (gluten, eggs, soya, milk, crustaceans, fish, peanuts, nuts, celery, mustard, sesame, sulfur dioxide, lupine, molluscs) are made here: members of the FreeScuits and HighBake biscuit families.
Katalin Gyenge, who is the mother and engine of Katica Bakery, is the mother of 2 children and boasts 5 grandchildren. Generational change is also an important issue in a family business. In order for all ages to realize their own ideas, the company had to move forward. This is how gluten-free / vegan biscuits were born, which provided the reason for building the biscuit factory in Lepsény.
At present, the factory in Lepsény has a capacity of 2.2 t / 16 h, which means the production of biscuits in the order of 50-80 tons / month.
Baker Street Kft was established for the production and distribution of FreeScuits and HighBake, its managing director Gábor Süle, the son of Katalin. He praises his determination and dedication that the company can claim many domestic and international product awards just two years after its launch. When he dreamed up the biscuits, there was an important objective to bake a biscuit that would give a real taste experience to those who suffer from any kind of food intolerance or food allergy.
The great success of 2022 is that target has been achieved based on consumer and professional feedback.
