The Nutella®

From the farm to the Nutella® jars, we ensure quality milk along a controlled supply-chain.

A short and controlled supply-chain

The milk in Nutella® is supplied only by selected and reliable milk producers over long-term relationships. We also implement controls that are more stringent than those required by law and carry out additional checks to guarantee, in this respect, an even higher quality milk.

From milk to milk

For the unmistakable Nutella® recipe, we use skimmed milk powder. Discover the milk journey!

After milking, the milk is brought as quickly as possible to a temperature below 4°C in order to maintain its quality and sent to the dairy, where it undergoes physical-chemical and microbiological analyses. It is then treated to separate the cream from the milk and to obtain skimmed milk.

To ensure milk is microbiologically safe, it passes through a pasteurisation stage, which is the same treatment used for the milk sold in the refrigerated aisles of your supermarket. The milk is heated for 15 seconds at a temperature of 72°C to remove harmful bacteria and immediately cooled.

At this stage, the "dry" treatment phase begins through concentration and dehydration. The hot air facilitates the complete evaporation of the water content via a special technology called Spray-dry.

Quality and freshness

To meet our stringent quality and safety standards, we carry out specific physicochemical and microbiological analyses and check all the supplies we receive.
In addition, a dedicated team of tasters regularly tastes our milk to verify that the fragrance and organoleptic characteristics always meet our quality requirements.
This constant monitoring is carried out using modern procedures of descriptive sensory analysis by Ferrero central and local quality teams.

Good to know

The quality of the skimmed milk powder depends mostly on the quality of the fresh milk it originates from.

A short and controlled supply-chain

Over many years we have developed and nurtured long-term relationships with milk producers, which are carefully selected. These relationships are the strength of our short and controlled supply-chains. Moreover, we support the development of a process that ensures the progressive improvement of animal welfare standards.
