A controlled supply chain for high-quality milk

A controlled supply chain for high-quality milk
In Nutella® we use only milk supplied by selected and reliable business partners who are managed according to a controlled supply chain. We guarantee the stringent and continuous selection of our suppliers, an upstream traceability all along the supply chain. We implement controls that are even more exacting than those required by law and we carry out additional checks to guarantee an even higher quality milk.

Quality and Freshness

Quality and Freshness
Over the years, Ferrero has continuously developed and nurtured long-term relationships with carefully-selected suppliers in local milk-producing areas.
Our suppliers collect milk directly from their farmers, thus, guaranteeing freshness, taste and product safety.
This approach has fostered a mutual collaboration aimed at guaranteeing continuous standards of freshness and quality throughout Ferrero's global milk suppliers.

Furthermore, the excellent quality of the milk is checked by a pool of internal testing experts. They taste and test the samples on a daily basis. The constant monitoring of the organoleptic quality of every raw material takes place at different levels (at supplier level, at the plant upon arrival of the raw material, as well at the R&D central units and at Quality Control level) using modern procedures of descriptive sensory analysis.
