The world-famous bakery has signed a 10-year agreement with Testa Group, who will be running the franchise locally. Did you hear that? 10 glorious years of delicious sweetness in the form of Laduree’s macarons. The local company Testa Finance plc’s board of directors announced to the Stock Exchange that their trading arm known as Testa Catering Concepts entered the agreement with the French bakery.

Laduree was established way back in 1862 and is known to be one of the world’s premier sellers of the colourful double-decker macarons (cos one layer wasn’t enough), selling around 15,000 on the daily.

Laduree’s pastries are so well known, they even made an appearance in the 2006 film Marie Antoinette. Spot out the macarons in a scene between Marie Antoinette and Ambassador Mercy!
