Company history

The Barry Callebaut Group, headquartered in Switzerland, resulted from the merger between Belgian chocolate maker Callebaut and French chocolate producer Cacao Barry in 1996. The Group has been listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange since 1998. Following the integration of the acquired cocoa business from Petra Foods into the Barry Callebaut Group in June 2013, the company is now the largest manufacturer of both chocolate and cocoa products.
