—Suchard's slogan
Chocolatier depuis 1826.

Suchard is a Swiss brand of chocolate, which was founded by Philippe Suchard in 1825 and is currently owned by Mondelez International.


In 1825, the Swiss man Philippe Suchard founds his own chocolate factory in the city of Neuchatel, in Neuenburg. In this factory, the chocolate was handmade (artisanal chocolate). Since he was a born innovator, Philippe started to develop, in 1826, a new contraption which could improve the mixing of the cacao with the powdered sugar.
