Previous Q3 restated figures due to consumer divestiture

Barry Callebaut AG, the world’s leading manufacturer of high-quality cocoa and chocolate products, will announce on July 5, 2012 its 9-month key sales figures of fiscal year 2011/12, ended May 31, 2012.

As announced in July 2011, Barry Callebaut has sold its European Consumer Products business (Stollwerck) to the Belgian Baronie Group. Accordingly, the company presents last year’s interim figures from continuing operations, which are unaudited. 

For comparison reasons, the Group’s previous interim figures for the third quarter of 2010/11 are presented in the table below. The same format will be used for the presentation of the 9-month key sales figures of fiscal year 2011/12.

With annual sales of about CHF 4.6 billion (EUR 3.6 billion/USD 5.0 billion) for fiscal year 2010/11, Zurich-based Barry Callebaut is the world’s leading manufacturer of high-quality cocoa and chocolate – from the cocoa bean to the finished chocolate product. Barry Callebaut is present in 27 countries, operates around 40 production facilities and employs a diverse and dedicated workforce of about 6,000 people. Barry Callebaut serves the entire food industry focusing on industrial food manufacturers, artisans and professional users of chocolate (such as chocolatiers, pastry chefs or bakers), the latter with its two global brands Callebaut® and Cacao Barry®. Barry Callebaut is the global leader in cocoa and chocolate innovations and provides a comprehensive range of services in the fields of product development, processing, training and marketing.
