Traceability and transparency have always been a fundamental element in Ferrero’s approach to responsible palm oil sourcing.

sourcing. Since 2018, we have committed to publishing – every six months – the latest list of mills and plantations from which we source our palm oil. As such, we are pleased to share our latest list, reflecting the January-June 2021 period:


By combining both Ferrero , between January and June 2021 we sourced 99.47% of RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil) Certified Segregated palm oil and 0.53% conventional palm oil. Of this total, 99.40 % is traceable back to palm oil plantations. Our responsible sourcing approach means that we continue to be committed to a “no-deforestation” supply chain and to source sustainable palm oil that is 100% RSPO Certified Segregated and traceable back to plantations.

With initiatives driven by our Palm Oil Charter, we continue to improve our approach to responsible sourcing and we go beyond this already high certification requirement.

As a next step in our palm oil transparency commitment, in 2022 we will publish a yearly Progress Report where we will share our journey – including the challenges faced – in achieving the commitments outlined in our Palm Oil Charter and related Action Plan
