Lindt & Sprüngli has officially opened a new $60 million purpose built facility at Marsden Park in Sydney as it expands operations to capitalise on the Swiss chocolate maker’s strong growth in the Australian market. The purpose-built facility covers a 66,000 square metre site, with over 25,000 square metres of factory and warehouse space. The Marsden Park facility will employ up to 350 staff.

Ernst Tanner, group chief executive of Lindt & Sprüngli, says that the company’s decision to enter the Australian market nearly twenty years ago has proven to be one of the most successful ventures in the company’s history. “Never did we anticipate the reception that Lindt chocolates would receive in Australia when we first entered the market here. I am delighted that the growth of our business in Australia has allowed us to not only expand our operations but to provide people in Sydney’s West with employment opportunities with Lindt,” he comments.

The Lindt factory has commenced spinning a new range of Lindt Easter eggs, which will be available to the public in Easter 2017 using chocolate imported from Switzerland. The new range of Easter eggs will complement the iconic success of Lindt’s Gold Bunny.

“The fact that we are spinning a new product specifically for the Australian public is a reflection on the many successes we have had here. The team at Lindt Australia is eager to share the new Easter egg and we know that Australia will love it as much as we do,” he adds.
