  • Group sales increase in Swiss francs by +6.8% to CHF 3.901 billion

  • Strategic sales target achieved once again – despite a difficult market environment

Kilchberg, January 17, 2017 – Once again Lindt & Sprüngli succeeded in outperforming the overall chocolate market, achieving important market share gains and sales growth in line with strategic targets. This result is very encouraging, particularly given the background of a persistently challenging environment of stagnating and even declining chocolate markets, with generally subdued consumer sentiment, high raw material prices and rising price pressure on our trading partners. Ongoing adjustments to Russell Stover’s product portfolio and the optimization of its promotions strategy slightly weakened Group sales growth in the financial year, while at the same time setting the long term foundation for profitable growth in the future.
