Finishing with Perfection

At Lindt we know that enjoying chocolate is a full sensory experience. That’s why our attention to detail can be seen at every step, from our tempering process that ensures our chocolate finish is shiny and luxurious, to our elegant packaging. And final touches like the almonds atop our pralines and the ribbons that embellish each Gold Bunny are all placed there by hand.

What is tempering?

Tempering involves heating, cooling and then reheating chocolate to avoid uncontrolled crystallization and achieve a stable formation of cocoa butter, which is the fat in chocolate. It's this process that gives Lindt products their glossy chocolate finish and the chocolate bars their crisp snap.

Verb The process of coating praline centres by running them through a curtain of tempered chocolate.

Our special finishing touches

Lindt’s vintage ads and packaging

Through the years, Lindt’s ads have reflected what was happening in the world at the time, whether it was commissioning artists to illustrate ads during the Belle Époque, or using peace symbols to mark the end of the Second World War.
