Lindt & Sprüngli stands for long-term entrepreneurial thinking, premium quality of Swiss chocolate and continuity in management.
Since it was founded in 1845, but particularly over the last 30 years, the company has been writing a success story that is shaped by strategic management at the head of the Group as well as passionate, loyal employees. Continuous development and the accompanying change are the most important constants and represent at the same time the backbone of the Group. After all, continuity requires change, and only change can create stability and future viability.
In 1993, Lindt & Sprüngli faced economic and business challenges one more time in the company’s history. Back then, it was the international opportunities and enormous potential of the Swiss chocolate manufacturer, still a regional company at the time, that prompted Ernst Tanner to take on the role of CEO and Delegate of the Board of Directors. We look back on this decisive turning point in the Group’s history, which, over the past 30 years, has turned Lindt & Sprüngli into a Swiss global player ideally positioned for the future.
“Together we enchant the world with chocolate – every day.”
