Abstract

Alfred Ritter GmbH & Co. KG is one of the most successful family-run confectionery companies of our time thanks to its wellknown chocolate brand RITTER SPORT. RITTER SPORT's range of 100 g bars alone comprises a total of 28 varieties. In addition to these, there are minis, large bars and choco cubes, some of which have their own varieties, as well as recipes specially developed for seasonal occasions. During production, the company distinguishes between solid chocolate bars, such as the whole hazelnuts bar, in which the chocolate mass and the ingredients can be poured into the moulds together in one process and filled chocolate bars which first require a chocolate shell that is filled with the appropriate filling in the next step. For each variety, the chocolate mass and ingredients or fillings are exactly matched to each other: the queen of nuts, the macadamia, is combined with Alpine milk chocolate with its characteristic honey and caramel note, the whole hazelnuts bar with dark or milk chocolate or a pink grapefruit filling in white chocolate specially developed for the summer.
