Ferrero goes nuts for the Riverina-Murray region with its $70 million hazelnut venture.
Ferrero in Australia was established in 1974.
Sales of Ferrero’s most popular brands launched locally have consistently grown with increasing market presence.
Nutella and Tic Tac are made in the company's Lithgow factory found in the NSW Central West and Orana region.
Consistent with Ferrero’s global requirements, the factory is certified to the international standards of Food Safety (ISO22000 + PAS 220), Quality Management (ISO 9001), Environmental Management (ISO14001) and Energy Management (ISO50001).
Ferrero is recognised as a sustainable business leader, being a gold-certified member of the NSW government’s Sustainability Advantage program.
Agri Australis, a subsidiary of Ferrero, is a recent hazelnut business development project near Narrandera, NSW. It involves the planting of close to one million hazelnut trees on 2,000 hectares and brings additional opportunities to the agribusiness sector and the local community.
