India's culinary landscape just got sweeter with the introduction of renowned Swiss chocolate brand Läderach. Joining the ranks of beloved chocolatiers in the country, Läderach brings its legacy of over 60 years of crafting premium chocolates to Indian connoisseurs. In an exclusive partnership with Dharampal Satyapal Group (DS Group), a leading FMCG conglomerate, Läderach has unveiled its very first store in India, located in New Delhi's luxury hub, DLF Emporio.

Läderach's entrance into the Indian market has been eagerly anticipated, given the nation's growing fascination with artisanal chocolates. Swiss and Belgian chocolate makers have long captured India's culinary imagination, and Läderach's arrival adds a new dimension to this love affair.

From classic pralines and velvety truffles to signature chocolate bars, the store is a haven for those seeking refined cocoa delights. However, the pièce de résistance is the frischSchoggi – a Läderach specialty. These fresh chocolate tablets, available in milk, dark, or white chocolate, are adorned with an enticing medley of nuts, dried fruits, berries, and even crispy cornflakes. Each bite is a symphony of flavors and textures, showcasing Läderach's dedication to chocolate craftsmanship.

The store's opening was marked by prestigious guests, including Dr. Olivier Fink from the Embassy of Switzerland, Elias Läderach, the World Chocolate Master, and Rajiv Kumar, Vice Chairman of DS Group. The event included an exclusive masterclass conducted by Elias Läderach himself, where attendees had the privilege of delving into the art and science of chocolate-making under the guidance of a true expert.

Läderach's entry into India is just the beginning of an exciting journey. The partnership with DS Group sets the stage for a series of exclusive Läderach boutiques across the country. With plans to open five to seven additional stores within the next two years, Läderach's delectable Swiss chocolate offerings are set to grace even more cities, delighting chocolate aficionados nationwide.

Speaking at the store launch, Rajiv Kumar, Vice Chairman, DS Group, expressed his enthusiasm, stating, "We’re excited to bring our customers a unique experience offering unparalleled moments of chocolate indulgence."

Elias Läderach, World Chocolate Master and representative of the esteemed Läderach family, shared his excitement about introducing Läderach to the Indian market. He emphasized, "We are thrilled to introduce Läderach to the vibrant Indian market. India has a rich cultural heritage and a deep appreciation for craftsmanship and luxury, making it the perfect destination for our brand’s expansion."

And for those unable to visit the store, a virtual indulgence awaits – Läderach's online store is ready to deliver Swiss chocolate happiness to your doorstep.

Please note that while every effort has been made to provide accurate information, DS Group's plans to open additional stores and online ordering should be verified with official sources for the latest updates.
