Independent verification programme
Some of these high quality standards are also verified by SGS, the world's leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company. As an independent service provider, SGS verifies that Nutella® spread and all its ingredients match the requirement of “Our quality" verification programme.
Nutella®'s recipe is made with 7 quality ingredients and contains no preservatives, colourings, or hydrogenated fats. This is guaranteed by our internal quality policy as well as verified by SGS.
How does the SGS verification
The quality standards are independently verified by SGS according to a programme based on 4 pillars:
At this stage SGS and Ferrero define reference documents, representing the quality standards against which the verification programme is carried out.
SGS auditors carry out annual verification activities, both at Ferrero Headquarters and within each plant producing Nutella® around the world. These audits, both announced and unannounced, verify that the control plan defined by Ferrero for each stage of production - from incoming raw ingredients to finished product - is being met.
In addition to the audit activities SGS carries out regular analysis - performed at independent laboratories - on raw ingredients and finished product sampled in each plant producing Nutella®.
Finally, SGS plans occasional and random sampling of products taken from the points of sale for testing and label reviews.
