  • Growth of the Lindt & Sprüngli Group in local currencies, incl. Russell Stover +24.9%
  • Group sales increases in CHF by +17.4% to CHF 1.409 billion (incl. Russell Stover)

In the first half-year of 2015, Lindt & Sprüngli succeeded in achieving above-average organic sales growth of +9.4%. Despite slowing and, in some cases,  stagnating chocolate markets and record-high prices for raw materials, as well as an extremely strong Swiss franc, this result again confirms the success of our long-term strategy. The solid growth of the group comes from the European core markets, North America as well as from emerging markets, and translates into further market share gains. In North America, the company continues to grow double digits and reinforces an already strong leading position with the integration of last year’s acquisition, the chocolate company Russell Stover.

This ongoing success confirms that Lindt & Sprüngli continues to be one of the most successful premium chocolate producers in the world.
