2021 wishes from our Debic Ambassadors

The past year will certainly go down in history books for obvious reasons. All over the world restaurants were forced to shut down temporarily and chefs and bakers had to come up with alternative and creative ways of reaching their customers.
More than ever, we are ready to welcome in a new year and at Debic we look forward to continue innovating and delivering quality products and inspirational content made by and for you, the professional chefs and bakers. Curious to know what our Debic ambassadors are hoping for in 2021? Read on to discover their new year’s wishes!

"2020 was the strangest year of my career, and not just for me. We were one of the few to keep going, we were and are essential. We did that with full conviction! It was certainly not always easy, but we were there for our customers, we brought a spark of light, a small moment of happiness, a pioneer in bizarre times. We are proud of that. 2021 will be a year of new insights, awareness, the start of a new society. Together we are strong and we can continue to add value to the common good. I wish you and all those close to you an enriching and also a pleasant 2021."

"And Christmas has arrived ... An invisible tornado has put us to the test in this 2020, but will power remains stronger and more dynamic than sad thoughts, we must be strong in mind, steel in spirit, and timely in acting to change a world that has changed, and that asks us to go hand in hand. THESE FESTIVITIES, we must live it to the fullest, in our made in Italy that the whole world LOVES us, and continuing to promote the king of Italian sweets that has made us famous in the world, the PANETTONE, sweet of infinite goodness, growing business and hope!!!!
May it be a new year with the spirit of change, technological, productive, social-media, and increasingly specialized professional growth, because this too will be the future, return to deep training, stores and boutiques increasingly specialized in a few products but of great quality and consistency over time.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy said:
'Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or the present are certain to miss the future'
A wish of great prosperity to all of you!"

"That all this bad period remains only a bad memory and that from all things one must always take, or at least try to take, some lessons. When we will be faced again with the hard work that distinguishes our category, we will then have to remember how hard it was to stay without doing anything forcibly, so as to appreciate our work even more. 
Finally, I hope that during this period my colleagues have been able to study, experiment and deepen techniques that in the frenzy of work you can never succeed, and then put them to use in the new year, which will be more splendid than ever!"
