In 2004 a 60,000 square foot state-of-the-art factory was opened in Dongguan, South China, with over 600 employees, while in 2012 the company opened a standard factory in Clark Free Port, The Philippines, and also “Passion by Gérard Dubois” Boulangerie – Pâtisserie – Confiserie” in Hong Kong. From an initial selection of 28 items, La Rose Noire now has over 500 varieties in its product brochure, fulfilling the needs of different sectors in the market.
