Anthon Berg was a famous Danish chocolatier and the name of a corporate division within Toms International.

Anthon was originally a Copenhagen green grocer and later with his son, Gustav Anthon, created a premium chocolate line with a loyal customer base composed of the upper middle class and upper class of Danish society. The company was founded in 1884. “For half a century, Anthon Berg has borne the distinguished title ‘Purveyors to the Royal Danish Court.’” The company was held by the Berg family until the late 1960's. The company has an estimated market cap of around $600 million. Today owned by Toms International. The Berg family descendants no longer work for the company. They reside in Denmark and the USA.
