Jordi learnt about the world of bakeries as a young man from his father. In 1994 he joined Le Bon Pain De France where Cristian Denys taught him about the up-and-coming business of deep-frozen, uncooked bread and deep-frozen pastries in France. In 1996 he entered Europastry, where he has spent most of his career in a variety of posts in finance, operations, marketing and sales. In 2004 he was appointed managing director of the company and in 2010 he took over from his father as executive president of Europastry.
