Description
Rodolphe Lindt, actually Rudolf Lindt (* 16 July 1855 in Bern, † 20 February 1909 ibid) was a Swiss chocolate factory and inventor. He was the founder of the chocolate factory Lindt as well as inventor of the conching machine and other methods for improving the quality of the chocolate.



In 1899 Lindt sold his factory and the "secret" of the Conchierens to the Chocolat Sprüngli AG, which since then under the name Lindt & Sprüngli AG firmiert. For the trademark rights and the Lindt recipes, Sprüngli had to pay 1.5 million gold francs. Lindt led the "Berner Zweig" from Lindt & Sprüngli until 1905, four years before his death.



Lindt died on the 16th of June 1855 in the age of 53 years in Bern, Switzerland. He was also buried there.
