Latest Ferrero Group approved consolidated financial statements

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.

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.
