A Swiss chocolate foundation

Founded in 2013 in Kilchberg (Zurich), the Lindt Chocolate Competence Foundation aims to sustain, cultivate and promote Switzerland’s long-term standing as a business location for chocolate and further strengthen Swiss chocolate-making expertise. The Foundation’s aim is the non-profit promotion of science and research, education, culture, and information to the public about chocolate.


A major project of the Foundation is the Lindt Home of Chocolate. This competence center in Kilchberg created an infrastructure (museum and pilot plant) that will further expand knowledge and expertise relating to chocolate production and really bring the reputation of Swiss chocolate to life for visitors from all over the world.
