Philippe Suchard
Philippe Suchard (* 9. Oktober 1797 in Boudry (Kanton Neuenburg); † 14. Januar 1884 in Neuenburg) war ein Schweizer Schokoladenhersteller und Unternehmer. 1825 eröffnete er in der Stadt Neuenburg seine erste Confiserie/Chocolaterie. Bereits 1826 zog die Fabrikation in die leerstehende Mühle des Neuenburger Vororts Serrières um. Philippe Suchard erfand den Mélangeur – eine Maschine zur Vermengung von Zucker und Kakaopulver, wie sie heute noch verwendet wird.
Philippe Suchard (9 October 1797 – 14 January 1884) was a Swiss chocolatier and industrialist. Suchard became aware of the potentialities of chocolate manufacturing as an industry at the very early age of about twelve. In 1826, Suchard opened the factory of Chocolat Suchard in Serrières. He used hydropower of the nearby river to run the mills in his two-man factory. Suchard used a grinding mill consisting of a heated granite plate, and several granite rollers moving forwards and backwards. This design is still used to grind cocoa paste. Suchard was not only a chocolatier but also had interest in other areas. In 1834 he introduced and captained the first steamer, Industriel, on Lake Neuchâtel. He also tried introducing silkworm culture in Switzerland in 1837, but the silkworms were destroyed during an epidemic in 1843. His interest in managing river water and controlling floods led to the sinking of the water level in Lake Neuchâtel. The lowered lake shoreline revealed the Celtic settlement of La Tène dating back to around 450 BC.
