Russian pre-packed bakery specialist Harry’s has reopened a production plant in Russia which burned down in 2004.

Based at Solnechnogorsk, near Moscow, the bakery has been restored at a cost in excess of €30 million. The plant has seven lines producing Swiss rolls, cakes, wafers and brioche.

Harry’s has a second plant in central Russia, which gives it a total capacity in Russia for 70,000 tonnes a year. Part-owned by Italian food group Barilla, Harry’s also has 12 factories in six European countries producing bread, viennoiserie and pastry.

Total turnover is in excess of €550m. Its four main brands are Harry’s in France and Russia, La Bella Easo in Spain, Morato in Italy and Dan Cake in Turkey.
