On Monday, 15 January, the staff of our AMAZONE subsidiary gathered in Forbach, France for the management's New Year greetings. This annual event also presents an opportunity to enjoy the traditional "Galette des Rois". This puff pastry tart with marzipan filling is traditionally eaten on 6 January 2024 on the feast day of the Three Wise Men. A small bean is hidden in the cake and whoever finds this bean in their piece by the end of the event is crowned king or queen of the day. During this year's event, nine employees were honoured for their many years of service to AMAZONE.
