From the website of Chococsuisse (http://www.chocosuisse.ch) I read and am sharing here these information:
"Swiss chocolate" is a completely conched chocolate or chocolate mixture made of cocoa beans, cocoa mixture, cocoa butter, sugar and in some cases milk, manufactured entirely in Switzerland. Otherwise the use of the "Swiss chocolate" label at home and abroad has to comply with the "clarity principle". This presupposes that any partial processing outside of Switzerland (e.g. shaping or packaging of the product) is explicitly stated on the package.
Owing to the excellent reputation of genuine Swiss chocolate, it comes as no surprise that it is constantly brazenly copied outside of Switzerland. CHOCOSUISSE has resolutely fought against the unlawful use of the "Swiss chocolate" label throughout the world for many years now and has been successful in the process.
Chocology is a booklet free to download for those who would like to know more of the history of Swiss chocolate industry. Check this link:
