Creating quality chocolate is an art that requires knowledge, dedication and passion, and the Lindt Maîtres Chocolatiers are masters of this.

Indeed, since 1845 they have been developing and refining their recipes with absolute devotion, selecting quality ingredients and raw materials and carefully controlling the production processes, thus contributing to the spread of the Lindt chocolate culture. Today Lindt is the leading company in the production and distribution of high quality chocolate and is present with its products in the most important countries in the world.

The chocolate tradition dates back to 1845 when master confectioner Rudolf Sprüngli of Zurich succeeded in producing chocolate in solid form and started selling it; until then, cocoa had only been used for chocolate drinks. Rudolf Sprüngli’s skills were later complemented by Rodolphe Lindt’s industrial and production expertise, determining the success and fame of Swiss chocolate. In 1899, the two families merged and Lindt & Sprüngli was founded, rapidly expanding throughout Europe.

Since then, the group has grown steadily and today boasts a presence in 80 countries with 20 subsidiaries and 8 production plants.

The secret of Lindt’s success is based on four key values that have always represented the company’s philosophy:

  • tradition: the continuous pursuit of excellence, since 1845.
  • quality: of raw materials, of the production process, of packaging, of communication.
  • its Swiss origins: the home of chocolate par excellence.
  • passion: Lindt is the “home” of chocolate and aims to guarantee its consumers a special and delicious experience every time.

The brand’s best known and best loved products are:

Lindor: a shell of the finest chocolate with a smooth, irresistible melt-in-the-mouth filling.

Excellence: a range of dark chocolate bars that introduced the concept of tasting and cocoa percentages.

Gold Bunny: The bunny made of the finest Lindt chocolate with a golden wrapper and real little bell, symbol and personification of Easter.

Teddy Bear: The latest addition to the Lindt family. Made of the finest milk chocolate, Orsetto is embellished with a small red heart around its neck and an elegant gold wrapper; a delicious way of expressing all your affection.
