In 2014, Fazer continued to improve its performance, despite difficult market conditions. The Group’s net sales and operating profit fell slightly below 2013 levels but showed an improvement when measured with comparable foreign exchange rates.
Fazer's master chocolatier Eero Paulamäki came second in the Scandinavian pre-selection for the World Chocolate Masters competition in Copenhagen. The jury also awarded best in every category. Paulamäki won the category for best showpiece. The competition was of a high level, as usual.
Fazer plans to renew the structure of its restaurant organisation. Fazer will start collaboration negotiations in the food services business area in Finland, affecting 100 people in total. If carried out, the changes may lead to the termination of 20 positions at the most. Fazer will support those whom the termination of employment would affect.
Fazer’s Eero Paulamäki will compete in the Scandinavian pre-selection for the Word Chocolate Masters in Copenhagen, Denmark in March. The prestigious competition, the only one of its kind in the world, is entirely dedicated to the creative use of chocolate with some of the most talented chocolatiers from around the globe taking part.
In 2014, Fazer proceeded towards its cocoa vision and increased the proportion of cocoa meeting the requirements of responsibility to 50 per cent. Fazer actively participates in creating a common European standard for responsible cocoa.
Fazer’s finalists excelled in yesterday’s PRO Gaala for HoReCa professionals in Helsinki. There were two Fazer employees among the 36 finalists.
A study by nutrition researchers from the University of Helsinki confirms that you can enjoy a moderate amount of dark chocolate and feel good about it. The research involved switching the everyday snacks of 22 subjects with seven dark chocolate Fazer pralines during ten weeks.
In 1944, Working Site Service (Työmaahuolto in Finnish) was established to provide catering services for construction sites with the help of members of the former Lotta Svärd organisation, a voluntary paramilitary organisation for women. Through business acquisitions, this competence capital was transferred to Fazer and Amica restaurants in the 1970s.
