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. Including Russell Stover’s share in sales, now consolidated for the first six months of 2015, growth in local currencies is up by +24.9%.
