Historic 19th Century Krasny Oktyabr (Red October) chocolate factory 

What started as a small shop producing sawed sugar and later on a small workshop for production of chocolate and sweets on Arbat Street, developed into a factory on the bank of the Moskva River. The year of foundation was 1867.
The brand name became world-renowned, and for the first time took home the Grand Prix at the Paris World Fair in 1900Its reputation grew and in 1913 it began supplying the Tsar. 
After the October Revolution in 1917 the confectionary plant was nationalized and in 1922 it acquired the name of "Krasny Oktyabr." The factory was closed with the beginning of 2008 to be converted into luxury flats.The Red October factory museum will, however, remain open on the island, as well as a hand-made chocolate production department. 

The production and about 3,000 workers were gradually moved to the new site in the outskirts or Moscow, where the company plans to make 120,000 tonnes of confectionery a year, mostly for Russia and other former Soviet countries.
