Net income (EBIT) at the end of June 2015 was 17.5% higher than the same period in 2014, at CHF 90.6 million.

High performing, diverse and passionate employees are a key success factor for Lindt & Sprüngli. The attraction, early identification, continued assessment and targeted development of talented individuals is the combined effort of employees, managers at all levels and HR-responsibles.
