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.
Caring for the environments and communities in which we operate
Ferrero Australia is deeply committed to promoting environmentally safe practices that continually improve the ways we work to have a positive impact on our team, our planet, our customers and the communities in which we operate.
We are guided by our global sustainability priorities:
• Protecting the environment
• Sourcing ingredients sustainably
• Promoting responsible consumption
• Empowering people and supporting our local communities
We feature responsible messaging that aids consumers in making appropriate choices about what they eat.
In Australia, we are a supporter of Be treatwise® and are committed to marketing communications that comply with the Advertising Codes of Australia and New Zealand.
Protecting the Environment
We work hard to manage and reduce our environmental impact, increasing environmental efficiency in our operations and supply chain, reducing emissions and water consumption, and increasing circularity in our manufacturing and packaging.
