A history of trust
Our procurement and quality teams have put a baseline selection procedure in place for new suppliers in order to support the development of sourcing from other sugar-producing countries. This is a guarantee that the raw material always meets the Group's high quality criteria through its internal auditing system.
Collaborating closely with suppliers enables Ferrero to identify the origins of the sugar contained in Nutella®.
It's all about quality
The Ferrero Group ensures that no genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are used in its products, including Nutella®. The sugar sourced is, therefore, 100% non-GMO.
BONSUCRO: Better Sugarcane Initiative
By 2020, Ferrero is committed to obtaining all refined cane sugar from certified sustainable sources. Since 2010, the Group has been a member of "Bonsucro - Better Sugar Cane Initiative", a global non-profit organisation that promotes sustainability of the sugarcane sector through a certification scheme. In 2014, Bonsucro awarded the Ferrero Group the inaugural Leadership Award for its active participation in promoting the development of a sustainable sugarcane sector.
