Lindt


The company dates back to 1836, when David Sprüngli-Schwarz and his son Rudolf Sprüngli-Ammann bought a small confectionery shop in the old town of Zurich, Switzerland producing chocolates under the name David Sprüngli & Son.

In 1879, almost by accident, Rodolphe Lindt, a chocolate manufacturer from Bern, Switzerland developed the conching process to make the delicious, melt-in-the-mouth chocolate that has remained a symbol not only for world-renowned Swiss chocolate but also for the innovativeness and inventive spirit of successful entrepreneurs from this small country in the heart of Europe.  

In 1899 Sprüngli acquired the chocolate factory of Rodolphe Lindt and the company changed its name to "Aktiengesellschaft Vereinigte Berner und Züricher Chocoladefabriken Lindt & Sprüngli" (United Bern and Zurich Lindt and Sprungli Chocolate Factory Ltd.).
