Alfred Ritter GmbH & Co. KG
"With the plant in Breitenbrunn, we found a suitable facility to meaningfully complement our production in Waldenbuch thanks to the substantial support provided by ABA. We can look back at a longstanding, successful partnership with Austria. We already set up our first subsidiary here in 1983, and now our first production site outside of Germany is also located in Austria. I think that this clearly demonstrates the particular importance the company has attached to Austria for many years."
Andreas Ronken, CEO Alfred Ritter GmbH & Co. KG
Ritter Sport has been operating its very first production facility in Austria, located in Breitenbrunn on Lake Neusiedl, since January 2021. This represents an historical milestone for the company. For the first time, it is not exclusively manufacturing all its square shaped chocolate at its German production site in Waldenbuch. At present, 60 employees work at the plant in Breitenbrunn, with the workforce expected to grow to 80 people in the medium term. In addition to the Amicelli® brand, the traditional product Ritter Sport Rum and the entire vegan production line is being manufactured in Burgenland. In this way, Ritter Sport has laid the foundation for further growth in the years ahead.
