Ferrero Group financial figures

At the China Awards 2013 which were held at the Museum of Science and Technology in Milan, Ferrero was the only group to receive recognition for its corporate social responsibility thanks to Shanghai Master Tennis, a Kinder+Sport project designed to encourage children to practice sport and adopt a more active, healthy lifestyle. Fiona May, guest at the award ceremony, is "Ambassador" of the project.

Every year the event, organised by the Italy-China Foundation and Milano Finanza, presents awards to the Italian companies that have made the most of the opportunities that the Chinese market offers and vice versa. “The award was first set up 8 years ago at a time when China seemed to be more of a threat than an opportunity” said Cesare Romiti, President of the Foundation.

Ferrero began its journey in the small town of Alba in Piedmont, Italy, in 1946. Today, it is one of the world’s largest sweet-packaged food companies, with over 35 iconic brands sold in more than 170 countries. The Ferrero Group brings joy to people around the world with much-loved treats and snacks, including Nutella®, Kinder®, Tic Tac® and Ferrero Rocher®. With over 47,000 employees, we are passionate about helping people celebrate life's special moments. The Ferrero Group, now in its third generation, is based on family values with a dedication to quality and excellence, heritage, and a commitment to the planet and communities in which we operate.
