The packaging of our signature recipe

The Nutella® approach to sustainability is reflected not only in the sourcing of our ingredients but also on the development of our packaging. Nutella® jars are recyclable and Nutella® also designs formats that can have a secondary use in the family kitchen once empty such as a drinking glass, a measuring cup, storage, etc.
