Zurich/Switzerland, March 19, 2012– Barry Callebaut AG, the world’s leading manufacturer of high-quality cocoa and chocolate products, will announce on April 2, 2012 its half-year results of fiscal year 2011/12, ended February 29, 2012.

As announced in July 2011, Barry Callebaut sold its European Consumer Products business (Stollwerck) to the Belgian Baronie Group. For comparison reasons, the Group’s previous interim figures for the first six months of 2010/11 (unaudited) are presented in the table below. Restatements mainly reflect the impact of the divestment of Stollwerck. The same format will be used for the presentation of the half-year results of fiscal year 2011/12.
