The founding year
Alfred Eugen Ritter and Clara Ritter, née Göttle founded the chocolate and confectionery factory at Innere Moltkestraße in the Stuttgart district of Bad Cannstatt and the first cornerstone for RITTER SPORT’s chocolate history was laid – this was where the first “Ritter” chocolates were made and sold.
Ritter celebrates its 100th anniversary
The family business from Waldenbuch has now been established for 100 years. In order for everyone in Germany to join in the celebrations and not just the locals, the family business comes up with something special: the Colourful ChocoTour, a spectacular Choco Experience that makes all the fascinating aspects of chocolate come alive and visits a total of 19 cities in Germany between March and September 2012. RITTER SPORT also expresses its thanks to all chocolate lovers by offering tasty anniversary products and a great anniversary competition.
