Words from the President

“Needless to say it was a turbulent year with major consequences from the war in Ukraine which led to a lot of focus on the supply chain, raw materials, energy and general cost inflation. At the same time, our business progressed very well – under the circumstances – and we were able to deliver on our strategic agenda when it comes to cost control and pricing while retaining healthy volumes.”

Strategic priorities

Cloetta is a proud provider of joyful moments – our brands and products bring fun and joy to memorable occasions. We are convinced that our consumer focus is the basis for Cloetta to grow and our brands to flourish. We will meet the future as a united organisation – One Cloetta – with a winning culture and passionate way of working.

New greenfield facility

In 2022, Cloetta took the decision to invest in a new greenfield facility in the Netherlands and consequently to close the three current confectionery factories in Turnhout, Belgium, and Roosendaal, the Netherlands. The investment will enable significant cost savings, facilitate further growth and reduce greenhouse emissions.
