We are going through a difficult period for the HoReCa industry, which motivates us to come up with innovative solutions to problems we have never faced before and determines us to be flexible and proactive. In the past few months, we have made decisions that have already produced the intended results, by mitigating the financial impact of the measures to contain the pandemic. In this context, my objectives are to continue to adapt the business in a complicated environment, so that we guarantee its sustainability and its position as top choice for the customers,” stated Călin Ionescu, Chief Executive Officer.
