Läderach continues expansion entering the vegan chocolate market

Premium chocolate brand Läderach Chocolatier Suisse has made a key move in expanding its portfolio to include a series of vegan chocolate offerings, writes Neill Barston.

The Swiss-founded business has enjoyed notable recent success following its major expansion into the US market, which has seen the company’s overall series increase significantly.

Confectionery Production magazine recently interview the company’s North American president Nathanael Hausmann, who revealed that the region had quickly taken to the brand, with its newly acquired physical stores making a key impact. (You can see the exclusive video with him here).

In addition to existing pure and select dark chocolate with fruit and nuts, Läderach’s new vegan chocolates include cashew milk instead of dairy milk, coconut blossom sugar instead of sugar and no preservatives.

The coconut blossom sugar comes from Indonesia (organic quality), the cashew milk from Vietnam, and the cocoa beans from Ecuador and Ghana. Product innovation is led by World Chocolate Master Elias Läderach. The new vegan chocolate collection with a specially marked “Vegan Taste Approved” packaging sticker includes its cream.

It will be available in a Creamy Cashew Tablet, FrischSchoggi Vegan Cashew, FrischSchogg Vegan Pouch Small, as well as the following vegan FrischSchoggi chocolates are included: FrischSchoggi Grand Cru 70%, FrischSchoggi Almond Dark, FrischSchoggi Blackberry Dark, FrischSchoggi Cashew Vegan, FrischSchoggi Orange-Almond Dark, and FrischSchoggi Pistachio Dark, Creamy Cashew Vegan Popcorn.

Our Läderach team is proud to offer the vegan community delicious new premium fresh artisanal vegan chocolates made bean-to-bar in-house and delivered directly from Switzerland,” said Nathanael Hausmann, president, Läderach North America. “With our unique ingredients and extreme attention to craftsmanship, our new vegan chocolates can unlock a rewarding five sensory experience and compliment any occasion well, synonymous to our existing Läderach premium chocolate collection.”
