The Red Ribbon Bakery, one of Argentina’s oldest bakeries, has opened its doors in the northern state of Tamaulipas, about 70 kilometres (43 miles) north of the capital, Buenos Aires.
The business opened in April 2015.
“We have a very good relationship with the local government,” said Gerardo Rocha, the baker.
“They are very patient and we have a great relationship with them.
They understand the business model, they understand the risks.”
Rochas family opened the bakery in 1974 and since then has made it a success.
“When we started this bakery, it was difficult,” said Rocham.
“There was no electricity, there was no refrigeration, we had to build our own oven, and we had a lot of water problems.”
The family opened a bakery in the town of Quiriguato, about 20 kilometres (12 miles) from Tamauco, in 1994.
“I didn’t have the knowledge to make bread, so I started making cakes,” said the baker, who now works as a baker in Tamaúco.
“Today, the cakes are the best in the world.”
Ruchas family also has a small bakery in Quiriga de la Caca, a mountainous area in the region.
The bakery is located in a wooded area with views of the San Miguel Mountains.
Rucha says his family was able to open the bakery because it was the only one in the area.
“In Tamaucas, we do not have any roads,” said Paz Rucham.
In the past few years, Ruchadas family has opened a number of small bakeries.
The company has been expanding in the Tamaueca region of Argentina.
In May 2017, it opened a small, one-storey bakery on the outskirts of Buenos Aires, and in 2018 it opened its first two stores in the province of Tenerife.
“Our business is expanding, we have two stores now,” said Mr Ruchado.
