In 1994, the Lindt & Sprüngli Group accquired Hobauer and Küfferle and enriched its portfolio with famous local brands and their corresponding chocolate culture.
Hofbauer’s story began with the opening of a confectionary shop in Vienna in 1882 by Carl Hofbauer which soon became well-known for its delicate chocolate creations. Until today, Hofbauer stands for high-quality confectionary pralines such as the Mozart truffles and carefully selected ingredients with a unique Viennese charm.
Since 1865, Küfferle has delighted Austria with chocolate creations such as the famous KATZENZUNGEN (cat’s tongue) invented in 1892 as well as the SCHOKOSCHIRMCHEN (chocolate umbrellas), invented in 1950. Until today, Küfferle’s chocolate creations are true icons and bring joy to the entire family. Since 1972, Küfferle is part of Hofbauer. In 1994, the traditional Austrian chocolate brands were acquired by Lindt & Sprüngli.
