From the Manufacturer The Lindt Difference Creating fine chocolate is an art that requires great skill, dedication and passion. The Master Chocolatiers of Lindt are experts of this craft. For more than 165 years, Lindt has been developing innovative chocolate recipes with meticulous craftsmanship, resulting in superior tasting, high quality premium chocolate. Lindt Chocolate uses only the finest ingredients, and is one of the few chocolate manufacturers that control the entire production process – from roasting the cacao beans to producing the chocolate. The Lindt Story In 1845, confectioner David Sprüngli-Schwarz and his inventive son, Rudolf Sprungli-Ammann, owned a small confectionary shop in the Marktgasse of Zurich’s Old Town. They dared to try something new- a fashionable new recipe from Italy for manufacturing chocolate in solid form. In 1879, Rodolphe Lindt, one of the most famous chocolate-makers of his day, developed a technique by which he could manufacture chocolate unique to others in aroma and melting characteristics. Lindt used the “conche” he had invented to produce chocolate with delicate flavor. His “melting chocolate” soon achieved fame, and contributed significantly to the worldwide reputation of Swiss chocolate. It was in 1899 that Sprüngli’s private company “Chocolat Sprüngli” acquired the small but famous chocolate factory of Rodolphe Lindt in Berne. This brave step transferred not only the factory but also the manufacturing secrets and the Rodolphe Lindt brand name to the young Sprüngli company which now changed its name to “Lindt & Sprüngli.” In 1986, Lindt & Sprüngli (USA) Inc., was activated and a manufacturing site and administration building were commissioned in Stratham, New Hampshire where it has expanded and successfully operates today.
