Zurich/Switzerland, June 20, 2012 – Barry Callebaut AG, the world’s leading manufacturer of high-quality cocoa and chocolate products, will announce on July 5, 2012 its 9-month key sales figures of fiscal year 2011/12, ended May 31, 2012.

As announced in July 2011, Barry Callebaut has sold its European Consumer Products business (Stollwerck) to the Belgian Baronie Group. Accordingly, the company presents last year’s interim figures from continuing operations, which are unaudited.

For comparison reasons, the Group’s previous interim figures for the third quarter of 2010/11 are presented in the table below. The same format will be used for the presentation of the 9-month key sales figures of fiscal year 2011/12.

Barry Callebaut is the global leader in cocoa and chocolate innovations and provides a comprehensive range of services in the fields of product development, processing, training and marketing.
