The Group achieved strong group sales of +7.7% in the first half-year, generating consolidated sales of CHF 1.67 billion. Organic growth increased to +5.1%. The Group is therefore on track to achieve its strategic target of organic sales growth of around +5% for the full financial year. Market share gains were particularly impressive in the large markets in Europe, considering the highly saturated chocolate markets and an exceptionally challenging trading environment. A vibrant seasonal business, the launch of product innovations and the good performance of own chocolate boutiques and cafés are building the base for this success.
