Uzwil | Switzerland

Born in Austria in 1977, Thomas Bischof became a chocolate expert at an early age – simply by eating a lot of it. After marrying his wife Silke, his sons Maximilian and Sebastian then also joined the club of chocolate experts.

In 2006, the graduate engineer, who also holds a master’s degree in business administration, joined the Bühler Group. He initially worked in R&D and has been the head of Product Management since 2009.

In 2014, he became Marketing Director for the Consumer Foods business area. In almost 10 years with Bühler, his time has been dedicated completely to the cocoa and chocolate industry, helping producers to benefit from global and regional trends and opportunities in the market.

With a leading market position, Bühler’s process technologies and solutions contribute significantly to the worldwide production of cocoa and chocolate. Bühler is proud of its Swiss roots, with 10,600 employees in some 140 countries generating sales of CHF 2.3 billion. The family-owned company Bühler is particularly committed to sustainability.
