1.
The Ricola Familienholding collects art from Switzerland from 1950 to the present for the Ricola Group and awards the Ricola Collection Prize.

2.
Initiated by company founder Emil Richterich-Beck, the Richterichs’ collecting activities are a vital aspect of Ricola corporate culture and are to be perpetuated with a clear focus on contemporary painting.

3.
The works in the Ricola Collection are exhibited in the buildings of the Ricola Group. This represents an exhibition policy that is deliberately distinct from the presentation of art in a museum or in exhibition spaces created for it.


4.
Access to the works exhibited and the artistic, social, and historical conditions of its creation are communicated to personnel through commentaries on the works published in the corporate magazine and in-house tours.

5.
The group operates a library open to all employees that includes the latest publications on the artists represented in the collection.

6.
Public tours also offer a view of the Ricola Group’s collections.
