  • Growth of the Lindt & Sprüngli Group in local currencies (incl. Russell Stover) +24.9%
  • Group sales up +17.4% to CHF 1.409 billion (incl. Russell Stover)
  • Market share gains in all strategically important markets

Kilchberg, 18 August 2015 – With above-average sales growth of 17.4%, up to CHF 1.409 billion, the Lindt & Sprüngli Group is building on its impressive track record of recent years, despite record-high prices for raw materials and a strong Swiss franc. In local currencies, the Group’s sales growth increased by 24.9%. Without the first-time consolidation of Russell Stover, Lindt & Sprüngli achieved organic sales growth of 9.4%. This solid growth is being driven mainly by the core European markets, North America, the emerging markets and the company’s own worldwide store network Global Retail. Market share gains were achieved in all strategically important markets. Lindt & Sprüngli is extending its already strong leading position in North America with the integration of the US chocolate company Russell Stover, acquired last year.

The company’s very impressive results and its ongoing success confirm that Lindt & Sprüngli continues to be one of the most successful premium chocolate companies in the world.
