Lindt & Sprüngli in Switzerland is to make a significant investment in its production facility in Olten, Switzerland.
Over the course of 2018 the company plans to invest more than CHF 30 million (approximately US$30 million) to expand the Lindt Cocoa Center, which is responsible for producing cocoa mass for Lindt plants in Europe.
The production site in Olten is the largest plant in the company’s production network. In addition to setting-up another line for roasting cocoa and a new loading bay, a research facility will also be built.
The new facilities in Olten will support future growth of the entire Lindt & Sprüngli Group and are expected to be operational by spring 2019.
