We Exist To Create Sweet Moments of Joy in Everyday Life.

Our Values

For us, every person is unique and valuable, regardless of skin colour, gender, origin, age, religious conviction, sexual orientation, lifestyle, their abilities and possible limitations. This is also reflected in our approximately 1,300 employees with more than 50 nationalities and a wide variety of religious affiliations and lifestyles. What unites us is tolerance, respect and freedom of expression - these values are always at the heart of everything we do - and, of course, our love of fresh Swiss chocolate made from the finest ingredients.

Freedom of Opinion

All people have the same rights - regardless of their background, beliefs, and way of life. Every day, we come into contact with a wide variety of people who all have their own views, opinions and philosophies of life. To all of these people, we bring the same appreciation and the same openness, regardless of whether their views and opinions match our own or not.


Different opinions and views deserve respect. They give rise to new perspectives that enable us to grow both as a company and as people, as we can only learn from the experience of others in Switzerland or the many other countries of the world where we are present today.


A lively, innovative company like Läderach thrives on the diversity of the people who give their best every day. It is this diversity that characterizes us and makes us unmistakable. Our management team is becoming more female every year, and we are committed to equal opportunities in the workplace for all employees.


We are transparent about how we source, produce and market our products of the highest and freshest quality. Whether internally or externally, we communicate openly about our actions, ideas and goals and although we`re not perfect, we work hard to improve every day.

Our Brand

Enjoy the Freshness

All our ingredients are carefully selected. Only the best is good enough. For us, freshness is not a matter of finest taste. It is our everlasting frame of mind.

In connecting the rainforests with the Swiss Alps, we find the origins of our taste. We accompany our chocolate every step of the way: from the cocoa fields to our customers. And we know each of our partners by name and by heart.

Quality from Switzerland

We are proud to produce exclusively in Switzerland to guarantee the highest quality. We love our Swiss culture and Swiss traditions.

They have always inspired us in our work. Our roots are the base for our innovations. The Swiss Alps are our home. But the world is our guest.

The Tradition of the Chocolatiers

We are masters of our craft and strive for perfection every day. The shared passion for chocolate unites us. We still make many of our products by hand.

For something to be beautiful, it must be unique. We believe in the authentic craft. And we continue the tradition of the Chocolatiers.

Our History

From the very beginning, our chocolate journey has been defined by delightful discovery and innovation. In 1970, Rudolf Läderach Jr. invented a new manufacturing procedure for the chocolate truffle, improving the taste and texture. Since then, we have composed countless recipes that blend classic notes with modern aspirations.
