SEOUL, Aug. 11 (Korea Bizwire) – Paris Baguette, a Korean French bakery brand operated by SPC Group, introduced “Kopan” or sweet red-bean cream bread that has gained explosive popularity in France. Kopan, namely Korean pan, is a collective term meaning Korean bread selling at its Paris Baguette shops in France. SPC runs two such shops in Paris.
The sweet red-bean cream bread is called “brioche crème de lait aux haricots rouge” in France and made of brioche bread with red-bean and custard cream. An official at Paris Baguette said, “Kopan is selling like hot cakes at two shops in Paris. As Korean consumers want it to be sold in Korea, we decided to roll out the bread at shops in Korea.”
