Established at the Stratham, New Hampshire, campus in 1989, Lindt & Sprungli (USA) celebrated 30 years of growth and innovation in 2019. Starting out with just 1,400 tons of production volume in 1989, the company has grown to produce more than 41,000 tons per year—and will continue to expand its facilities to meet growing demand in the US for Lindt products. Today, Lindt and Sprungli holds the position of No. 1 in the US premium chocolate segment.
Over the years, Lindt has introduced several innovations that have transformed the US chocolate market. When Lindt EXCELLENCE launched its vertical packaging, many US bars—formerly in horizontal packaging—followed in step, creating more space on shelves that has allowed retailers to carry a larger assortment of products. The Lindt GOLD BUNNY was the first major chocolate bunny in the US to be “out of the box,” helping to create the hollow figure segment in the US. Other innovations, including the launch of the LINDOR mini bag, LINDOR caramel, and the Lindt EXCELLENCE sea salt bar, continued to set the standard for creativity and excellence in the US chocolate market.
With more than 50 retail stores across the country, a robust wholesale business, and a passion for excellence in everything we do, Lindt USA is poised for its next stage of growth. Our production expansion project, launched in 2019, will help to meet this growing demand by doubling manufacturing capacity at the Lindt Stratham campus, establishing the largest Lindt production facility in North America.
The Lindt Difference
Our brands, LINDOR, EXCELLENCE, CLASSIC RECIPE, Boxed Chocolate Pralines, and seasonal favorites like GOLD BUNNY, are created by our Master Chocolatiers. Since 1845, the Lindt Master Chocolatiers have developed and refined their unique secret recipes with unmatched standard for chocolate quality and passion for creative excellence. Whether you’re enjoying the intense flavors of an EXCELLENCE dark chocolate bar, or indulging in of our signature smooth melting LINDOR milk chocolate truffles, there is no doubting that our product offers our consumers the highest quality, best tasting chocolate experience.
Commitment to Sustainability
Lindt & Sprungli is one of the few manufacturers to produce chocolate from bean to bar—from the selection of the finest cocoa varieties through to the finished product. This enables us to foster sustainable behavior along the entire value chain.
High-quality cocoa beans are the heart of our chocolates. We want to know where our beans come from and what the conditions are on the ground. This is one of the most fundamental criteria of a sustainable and traceable cocoa bean supply chain—and it’s not a task we want to delegate to others. That’s why we implemented the Lindt & Sprungli Farming Program.
