In addition to companies and brands owned by the Ferrero Group, several acquisitions have been made by Ferrero-related companies.
Ferrero has grown from a chocolate confectionary company to one of the global leaders in the sweet-packaged food market. Alongside organic growth, our global presence constantly expands as we enter new product categories and expand our footprint across the world through strategic acquisitions. In addition, we are growing our portfolio of well-established brands that consumers love, allowing us to diversify and create exciting growth opportunities.
In addition to companies and brands acquired by the Ferrero Group, several acquisitions have been made over the past years by Ferrero-related companies* to further expand into categories such as biscuits or fruit snacks, bringing many iconic brands into the global Ferrero product family.
*These Ferrero-related companies are not captured in the annual Consolidated Financial Statements of Ferrero International S.A., the parent company of the Ferrero Group. Furthermore, they do not fall under Ferrero Group governance, commitments and practices, even if strongly aligned.

“ Only those who have a deep understanding, an authentic relationship, a sense of values that are bound to one’s roots, will be able to move forward in the world, will be able to globalise, will be able to internationalise. Because the strength that our roots give us is the strength to always be true to ourselves.”
Giovanni Ferrero, Executive Chairman.
