February Outing, 2019 – Dried Food Factory visit (Dan On Foods)

We had an interesting day. Unfortunately we were delayed to the factory because of closed streets around the US consulate, and all workers in the factory were having lunch brake. But we could see the factory and buy some nuts. There was a quick visit to the Segafredo factory before heading back.
