Use of the NUTELLA® trademark
NUTELLA® is a registered trademark of Ferrero S.p.A.
The use of NUTELLA® hazelnut spread in the preparation of other products does not automatically grant a right to use the NUTELLA® trademark. However, certain limited use is authorized by Ferrero S.p.A. under the Guidelines set forth below.
GUIDELINES FOR THE USE BY INDEPENDENT RETAILERS OF THE NUTELLA® TRADEMARK FOR FRESHLY-MADE PRODUCTS FOR IMMEDIATE CONSUMPTION
These Guidelines ("Guidelines") exclusively apply to independent retailers operating in the field of sale of foodstuffs and/or foodservice (e.g. independent bakeries, restaurants, pastry-shops or cafés) (hereafter "Retailers"), in the Arabic speaking Countries and intend to refer to NUTELLA® hazelnut spread as a characterizing ingredient of one or more of their products (hereafter "Product"). These Guidelines and the right to use granted herein applies to single store independent Retailers only; any retailer of foodstuffs and/or foodservice operator that is part of a "chain" or acts as a franchisee is not considered a Retailer and therefore is not authorized to use to the NUTELLA® mark under these Guidelines. If a retailer is uncertain as to whether it is an authorized Retailer, it may contact Ferrero Foodservice directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ferrero can amend the Guidelines from time to time, and Retailers agree to be bound by the most up-to-date version of these Guidelines. Any such change will be communicated via the www.nutella.com/en/al website. Retailers further agree to comply with any other brand usage guidelines and/or quality control standards instituted by Ferrero S.p.A. from time to time.
- 1) You may only use the NUTELLA® trademark to portray to the consumer that NUTELLA® hazelnut spread is an ingredient within or on top of an authorised food product ("Product") as set out at the end of these Guidelines. You may not use the NUTELLA® trademark in out-of-store advertising.
- 2) The Product must be both made and sold only and exclusively within the Retailer's location, in a safe and healthy environment in accordance with all applicable laws, regulations and local ordinances.
- 3) The Product must be freshly made and sold no later than 24 hours from its preparation.
- 4) NUTELLA® must not be cooked, frozen or mixed with other ingredients;

- b. followed by the ® symbol of a registered trademark.
- 6) The NUTELLA® trademark cannot be emphasized over the name of the Product.
- 7) The use of the NUTELLA® trademark must not be in a way that can suggest an affiliation with Ferrero and must not take unfair advantage of Ferrero's goodwill. Furthermore, products with NUTELLA® must not be prevalent versus the other product offered in P.O.S.
EXAMPLES OF PERMITTED AND PROHIBITED USES

In-store menu signboards cannot list NUTELLA® hazelnut spread in the first ingredient position just below all Product names. For example:
In-store menu boards (or portions/subsets thereof) cannot be exclusively dedicated to Products containing NUTELLA® hazelnut spread. For example, the following is not permitted:
It is permitted to display jars of NUTELLA® hazelnut spread actually stored and/or used for the preparation of the Products at the point of sale, but only to the extent the jars of Nutella® hazelnut spread are not placed exclusively for ornamental purposes. The use of any point of sale materials (where provided) must be placed in a reasonable manner. For example:
Use of an excessive quantity of jars of NUTELLA® hazelnut spread as forming part of a point of sale display rather than intended for actual use (see example below) is not permitted without written permission from Ferrero.
