Karl Otto Fazer (August 16, 1866 – October 9, 1932) was a Finnish commercial counselor, businessman, and sport shooter.

He was born in Helsinki and died in Jokioinen. He had four children and was the grandfather of Peter Fazer. His father, Eduard Peter Fazer (originally Fatzer), was a Swiss-born furrier.

Fazer studied baking in Berlin, Paris, and Saint Petersburg before becoming a pioneer of Finnish confectionery. Together with his wife Berta he opened a French-Russian confectionery at Kluuvikatu in Helsinki on September 17, 1891. Later he opened a chocolate and candy factory in Punavuori.

Fazer, the company he founded, is still in existence. Many of its products have become classic. This is particularly true of the "Fazer Blue" ("Fazerin Sininen" in Finnish), a brand of chocolate that is often compared to salmiakki, as a candy that is a part of the Finnish national identity.

Karl Fazer was a nature lover, bird connoisseur, hunter and a fisherman. He founded many natural parks in Finland.

1912 Olympics

He was also an excellent marksman, and he participated the Olympic Games in 1912 with the Finnish shooting team. He placed twelfth in men's trap and fifth in men's team clay pigeons.
