Ferrero in Australia & New Zealand

Bringing joy to Aussies and Kiwis for over 50 years

Ferrero entered the Australian market in 1974 and ever since has been bringing joy to Australian and New Zealand consumers with its iconic brands like Ferrero Rocher, Kinder, Nutella and Tic Tac.

An exciting future grounded in our Italian heritage

We've been here for over 50 years, and today Ferrero Australia employs over 300 people across commercial operations in Australia and New Zealand. Instilled in every aspect of our business is the entrepreneurial spirit of our founders, and we work together as a family to bring the Ferrero passion for quality, creativity, and innovation to life every day.

We are immensely proud that Lithgow in regional New South Wales was chosen by Ferrero for its first  factory outside of Europe. A major employer within the region, our factory has now been the home of local Nutella manufacturing for over 40 years, servicing key markets including Australia, New Zealand and East Asia.
