Kilchberg, January 16, 2018 – For the first time in its history of almost 175 years, Lindt & Sprüngli achieved sales worth CHF 4 billion Swiss francs. Besides gaining significant shares in almost all markets, Lindt & Sprüngli once again grew faster than the overall chocolate market. Given the challenging conditions, such as largely saturated chocolate markets, a changing retail landscape and growing pressure on prices, this represents a good performance. The results achieved in Europe and the Rest of the World segment are particularly worth mentioning, as is the development of the Group's own retail network, which continues apace and reached sales worth half a billion for the first time. Despite weaker results in the USA, Lindt & Sprüngli remains on track in the world's largest chocolate market and during the last financial year set the foundation for further profitable growth.
