Kilchberg, July 22, 2016 – Despite a challenging environment, Lindt & Sprüngli achieved solid sales growth of +6.6%, with sales of CHF 1.502 billion in the first half of 2016. The biggest challenges facing the company in the first six months of the year were continuously high raw material prices for cocoa beans and cocoa butter, stagnating chocolate markets and generally subdued consumer sentiment. Extensive adjustments of Russell Stover’s product portfolio, as well as the optimization of its promotions strategy also had an impact on Group sales growth in the first half of 2016. On top of that, the performance in the first half of this year is set against the above-average half-year results achieved in 2015. In this difficult environment, Lindt & Sprüngli once again succeeded in outperforming the chocolate market as a whole and gaining important market shares in the first half of 2016.
