HALBA – Division of Coop Genossenschaft (Switzerland)
Under the HALBA brand, Coop has merged two production plants, Chocolats Halba and Sunray, at the Pratteln site. In the new building, which went into operation in October 2017, chocolate is produced and raw products are refined and packaged. Because HALBA wanted to expand chocolate production, additional space was required. As a result, HALBA had to reduce the space where the raw products are prepared and empty cartons are disposed of by half.
