Termination of partnership

Termination of partnership

After an open exchange, the Zurich Film Festival and Läderach have jointly decided to end their partnership. The SRF documentary has stirred everyone up. Although there are no accusations against the current management of Läderach, the suffering of the alleged victims is nevertheless associated with the family and company name. With this decision we want to ensure that the festival focuses solely on the joy of cinema.


Läderach – chocolatier suisse
Läderach – chocolatier suisse, the Swiss chocolate manufacturer, stands for three core values: freshness, artisanal skills, and Swissness. Founded in 1962, the family company employs approximately 1,800 people from more than 50 countries across the Group, which is headquartered in the Swiss canton of Glarus. Läderach oversees the entire production process from the cocoa bean to the store counter and manufactures its chocolate exclusively in Switzerland. This makes them one of just a few premium producers to guarantee sustainable quality from the cocoa bean to the end product. The artisanally crafted premium products are sold at more than 150 Läderach chocolateries with sales locations in 15 countries, as well as via franchise partners in the Middle East and Asia. Chocolate lovers can also order the specialties from Switzerland in Läderach’s online shop (www.laderach.com).
