„JOINT COMMUNIQUÉ OF JAN ZEMAN and HANA ZEMANOVÁ"
In connection with the end of our long-term partnership and the final settlement of our mutual rights and obligations, we have decided to publish the result of our agreement.
We founded Biopekárna Zemanka as a family business in 2006. Jan Zeman, Hana Zemanová and Věra Zemanová, Jan Zeman's mother, were the key people for its creation and development. Jan Zeman was in charge of the management of the company, the financial side of the business, commercial and administrative activities all the time. Věra Zemanová worked with her professional experience in the field of bakery and confectionery as the head of operations and chief technologist of the bakery. Hana Zemanová, as a recognized expert in healthy cooking and high-quality ingredients, played a vital role with Jan Zeman in devising the entire Zemanka project as well as in its actual activities, particularly in the selection of the ingredients used so that the resulting products are both tasteful and nutritionally attractive for various groups customers. Together with Věra Zemanová, Hana co-created the recipes for the basic range of biscuits and crackers, and Hanka has always supported Biopekárna Zemanka in terms of marketing, especially thanks to the interest of many media. During our partnership, Hana Zemanová wrote the books Biokuchařka and Bioabecedář, to which Jan Zeman contributed by creating an economic model of cooperation with the publishing house and its provision.
Until our settlement in connection with the divorce of our marriage, the share in Zemanka was part of our joint property. Now, according to the agreement between Hana Zemanová and Jan Zeman, Biopekárna Zemanka will fall under the exclusive ownership of Jan Zeman, who remains the sole partner and executive of Zemanka, and in the future the company will continue to independently bear all responsibility for its further development.
Hana Zemanová will no longer be involved in Zemanka in any way, she will not bear any responsibility for its development and will concentrate on her publishing activities and other activities in the field of healthy lifestyle, organic farming and organic food. You can continue to follow her activities at www.biokucharka.cz or at www.hankazemanova.cz.
Our paths diverge and we wish each other all the best in our future personal and professional lives.
Jan Zeman a Hana Zemanová"
