Ferrero will carry on being a factory of winning ideas.
This is a history of success that has now entered its third generation. The history of the past, present and future of a brilliant and tenacious Italian family from the region of Piedmont stands proudly behind the brand name, its financial success and the expansion of a multinational company. That's not all. The Group has developed so successfully thanks to the extraordinary daily commitment from every member of its workforce.
Since its establishment, in 1946, the company has been driven by its passion for excellence and by employee dedication. A spirit of loyalty and professionalism is the foundation upon which our staff conduct their dealings with consumers, communities, institutions and business partners.
This dedication has always brought great results; in the 2015-16 financial year the Ferrero Group registered a growing consolidated turnover of 10.3 billion Euros. The Ferrero Group, with more than 40,000 people across 53 countries, has 22 production plants around the world (of which 3 are Michele Ferrero Entrepreneurial Project in Africa and Asia), 6 hazelnut agricultural companies and 8 hazelnut processing plants. Its products are present and sold in more than 170 countries; they have become part of the collective memory and lifestyles of many countries where they are truly loved, generation after generation, and often considered as cultural icons. Our Chief Executive Officer , Mr Giovanni Ferrero, has never lost sight of the company's fundamental values and its core principles. He will continue to set new goals for the future and to lead the group towards further success.
