Spanish bakery group Europastry has invested EUR18m (US$23m) to increase its doughnut capacity and expand its product range, becoming Europe’s largest doughnut maker.

A new production factory and freezing warehouse with a capacity of 10,000 pallets increases Europastry’s total capacity to 300m units a year.

When the Barcelona-based factory comes on-line 100 new work spots will open up, the company said today (11 March).

The move is part of Europastry’s expansion strategy, which will see it invest EUR37m in 2009.

The group said that its focus remains on innovation, in terms of both products and production processes.
