TRACES OF MINERAL OILS IN FOOD
Ferrero guarantees its products are safe for consumers. They comply fully with the food safety requirements of all the countries in which they are marketed and often exceed those requirements.
Although the recently raised issue of mineral oil traces in food products has been known to the competent authorities and the food industry for several years, there is as yet no specific food safety regulation regarding this matter. The problem affects the packaging of virtually all foods: indeed, minimal traces of mineral oils occur everywhere in the environment.
All Ferrero packaging fully complies with applicable legislation on food contact materials. However, in line with its tradition of continuous improvement, since 2013 Ferrero has been engaged in a process of review of all the packaging materials used, in order to guarantee the best quality delivery to consumers.
