About the partnership between Credit Suisse and Lindt

Ernst Tanner is a man with ambition. Since taking over as Group CEO of Lindt & Sprüngli in 1993, he has overseen a period of consistent growth.

And the company that began as a modest father and son enterprise in 1845 is now recognized as a leader in the market for premium quality chocolate, offering a large selection of Lindt products in more than 120 countries on four continents around the world. Its Easter gold bunnies and Christmas gold bears, made in different varieties of chocolates, are the company’s most distinctive products. Lindt & Sprüngli’s quality chocolate products are made at its 8 own production sites in Europe and the US. The company recently acquired Kansas-based Russell Stover Candies, making it North America’s third-largest chocolate manufacturer.

Lindt Quote

What began as a modest family enterprise in 1845 is now a market leader in premium quality chocolate.

Lindt & Sprüngli has been a client of Credit Suisse since 1856 – the year the bank was founded. This is what we call a long-term partnership.

Our ongoing financial advice, support, and expertise has accompanied Lindt & Sprüngli over the decades and we have been its main banking partner ever since.

With the introduction of his company's latest product, the Lindt chocolate bear, we are convinced that Ernst Tanner will have yet another reason to celebrate. Credit Suisse is joining in the celebration.
