Rot Front Open Joint-Stock Company (Открытое акционерное общество "Рот Фронт", ОАО "Рот Фронт") is one of the oldest Russian confectionery manufacturers and a member of Obyedinyonnye Konditery holding company. Rot Front produces over 200 types of confectionery and sells in all Russian regions, CIS countries, Western Europe, North America and the Middle East.[1]

The factory was established in 1826 and acquired its present name after the German Communist slogan Rot Front!, during the 1931 delegation visit headed by Ernst Thälmann.
