Where does your cocoa come from?

The cocoa used in Nutella® originates mainly from the Ivory Coast and Ghana. Ferrero processes the raw cocoa beans to produce cocoa powder directly in its factories.

How does the cocoa used for the production of Nutella® affect the environment?

Ferrero signed the Frameworks for Action to end deforestation and restore forest areas in the cocoa producing countries of Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana. As a part of these Frameworks in Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana, the chocolate and cocoa industry will put in place verifiable monitoring systems in order to trace the cocoa from the farms to the factory. The industry will also work with the governments of Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana to ensure an effective national framework for traceability for all traders in the supply chain. At the same time, Ferrero remains dedicated to its ongoing work to map 100% of its cocoa supply chain, as well as to its partnerships to improve the livelihood of farmers and their communities with partners like Save the Children and Fairtrade & Cooperative Union ECOOKIM.

Child labour is widespread in the cocoa plantations of West Africa. What is your position on this issue?

In line with its Business Conduct Code, Ferrero confirms its firm intention of contributing to the eradication of child labour, particularly of its most detrimental forms, as well as of all types of slavery, forced and penal labour. Ferrero's Business Conduct Code is based on the ILO Convention 138 concerning the minimum age for admission to employment, as well as on the ILO Convention 182 regarding the worst forms of child labour. Ferrero ensures that its suppliers comply with the principles of the above-mentioned Code. Ferrero's Business Conduct Code is available at this web page.
