RIGA - Latvia’s confectionery and bakery Staburadze will take over the production of Korni crisp bread from Norway’s food manufacturer Kavli, said Staburadze representative Rita Voronkova, reports Nozare.lv.
Kavli has shut down its crisp bread production facility in Bergen and chosen Staburadze as its cooperation partner. Staburadze became Kavli cooperation partner by winning the company’s competition and edging out other Scandinavian and Baltic companies.
Crisp bread is a traditional Scandinavian food product, used on a regular basis as an alternative to bread. Four types of crisp bread will be produced in Latvia and distributed in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Great Britain, the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Japan. Crisp bread, under the brand of Selga, will be offered to Latvian consumers as well.
Staburadze management held a press conference on Feb. 28 to discuss expanding the company’s production facilities due to the new production line.
