NOVI SAD - Barry Callebaut, a leading global producer of premium cocoa and chocolate, will launch production at a new Novi Sad plant in 2021.

It will be the Swiss giant's first factory in southeastern Europe.

In a statement to Tanjug, Novi Sad Mayor Milos Vucevic said it would be a capital development investment, particularly because the plant's entire output - chocolate, chocolate fillings and mixes - would be exported.

"All products will be exported to the southeast European market, which is very significant in the financial sense. That is why this is a great victory for Novi Sad, but, above all, for the government of Serbia," Vucevic said.
