"David Sprüngli-Schwarz and his son Rudolf Sprüngli-Ammann bought a small confectionery shop in the old town of Zürich in 1836, producing chocolates under the name David Sprüngli & Son. Two years later, a small factory was added that produced chocolate in solid form. Out of that factory the company started growing to become a world-wide known brand."
Lindt & Sprüngli AG is a Swiss chocolate and confectionery company, recognized as a market leader in premium-quality chocolate in four continents. The origins of the company date back to 1836, when David Sprüngli-Schwarz and his son Rudolf Sprüngli-Ammann bought a small confectionery shop in the old town of Zürich, producing chocolates under the name David Sprüngli & Son. Two years later, a small factory was added that produced chocolate in solid form.
With the retirement of Rudolf Sprüngli-Ammann in 1892, the business was divided between his two sons. The elder brother Johann Rudolf received the chocolate factory which he converted into "Chocolat Sprüngli AG". He also acquired the chocolate factory of Rodolphe Lindt in Bern and changed its name to Aktiengesellschaft Vereinigte Berner und Züricher Chocoladefabriken Lindt & Sprüngli (United Bern and Zurich Lindt & Sprungli Chocolate Factory Ltd.).
The product portfolio of Lindt & Sprüngli consists of a wide range of chocolates - most prominent the Lindt chocolate bunny. From truffle balls (the so called "Lindor") over chocolate bars and desserts to icecream - and even liqueur there is something for every chocolate lover on earth.
Aside from the "hard" products Lindt & Sprüngli also opened their own stores and cafes around the world where you can sit down and enjoy chocolatey goodness.
Lindt relies on TYPO3 for their corporate website and makes extensive use of the TYPO3driven content functionalities as well as many features to engage consumers. Additionally it features more than 30 different languages for all their global subsidiaries.
