Cloetta and Löfbergs Lila are starting a new exciting cooperation when Löfbergs Lila is launching three new chocolate capsules with the classic taste of Cloetta.
About six months ago, the cooperation began between the two classic Swedish brands Cloetta and Löfbergs Lila regarding the work of offering the tastes of Cloetta in the chocolate capsules supplied by Löfbergs Lila, says Tony Wiréhn, business development director at Cloetta.
- After a number of challenges and many taste panels, the final result was Cloetta Original, Plopp and Center. In February, the longed-for capsules will finally be launched. We are very happy that our flavours and brands can be combined in one additional product category, says Tony Wiréhn. We already have a successful cooperation with the icecream producer SIA Glass with our flavours Tarragona, Guldnougat and Plopp.
- The interest for capsule brewing is increasing, and they will probably be a popular Christmas gift this year. So, it feels great to tell that we are presenting many exciting news shortly, says Björn Norén, sales manager for coffee capsules at Löfbergs Lila.
- The demand for capsules is making steady progress and next year, Löfbergs Lila is estimating to triple its sales of capsules. To meet the increased demand, Löfbergs Lila is launching about ten new capsules for espresso, fine-grind coffee, chocolate and tea in 2012, says Björn Norén.
