About Jakob's Basler Leckerly

The Basel-based family enterprise was founded in 1753 and is one of the 30 oldest existing companies in Switzerland. Jakob’s Basler Leckerly is actually the oldest company still operating in Basel to this day. Jakob’s Basler Leckerly was one of the pioneers of the traditional biscuit and rose to become a leading producer in the course of the 19th century. Today, the company still produces in the old town of Basel and is the only historical manufactory of the traditional Leckerly biscuit still in existence.

Here, these traditional biscuits are freshly made by hand every day according to recipes dating back four centuries. Only select raw ingredients are used and processed with great passion. The company is owned and managed by the Basel family Charlotte and Andreas Kuster. Production and distribution are managed by Fabian Wetzler and Astrid Geigy.
