Mercer picks up a sweet contract
IRELAND/UK - Mercer has been appointed by Lindt & Sprüngli, the Swiss chocolate manufacturer, to advise its UK and Irish businesses concerning its defined contribution pension plans and risk benefits.
Lindt currently has a defined benefit pension scheme in Switzerland worth €117m, according to Pension Funds Online, but no further information is available about the existing arrangements for employees based elsewhere.
Martin Hug, chief financial officer of Lindt & Sprüngli (UK) Ltd, said the new arrangement should provide "a comprehensive range of benefits for its UK staff" and ensure the company "continues to offer a high quality benefits package" to its UK and Irish employees.
