We are aware that the palm oil supply-chain faces environmental challenges, particularly concerning its impact on deforestation.

That's why Ferrero is committed to leading the way in driving the sustainable transformation of the palm oil sector and has been one of the first global companies to obtain a 100% RSPO-certified segregated palm oil supply-chain.

Nutella Sustainability Actions


100% traceable palm oil

The palm oil we use in Nutella® is 100% sustainable palm oil, traceable back to the mills. It mainly originates from Malaysia (averaging around 80% of our volumes) followed by Indonesia and Papua New Guinea.


The palm oil in Nutella® comes from a certified ‘segregated’ supply-chain.

The RSPO has developed a set of environmental and social criteria which companies must comply with in order to produce sustainable palm oil (Certified Sustainable Palm Oil - CSPO). These criteria aim to enforce sustainable practices in the cultivation of palm oil. The palm oil in Nutella® comes from a certified ‘segregated’ supply-chain. It is sourced from different certified plantations and is kept separated from ordinary palm oil throughout the entire supply-chain. Through this system, 100% of our palm oil can be traced back to the mills, guaranteeing that it does not come from plantations subject to deforestation.


Going beyond certification

To strengthen our commitments beyond RSPO certification, in 2013 Ferrero developed the Ferrero® Palm Oil Charter working together with suppliers to pursue a path that will avoid deforestation, species extinction, high emission of greenhouse gases and violation of human rights. Moreover, to further increase transparency on our supply-chain we regularly voluntarily disclose the latest traceability data on our supply mills. Ferrero is also a member of POIG (Palm Oil Innovation Group), an initiative comprising growers, manufacturers and NGOs working together to transform the palm oil industry.
