Ferrero’s Nutella was the first product to be awarded the INSTITUT FRESENIUS seal of approval in 1973. This shows that consumer protection has long been a top priority for the confectionery retailer and that Ferrero always strives to offer consumers the best product quality and comprehensive safety. A quality you can rely on.
Consumer protection is becoming increasingly important in Europe. A sign of this are the legal requirements for quality assurance in the production and use of food, which have steadily increased in recent years.
The requirements include hygienic and chemical-analytical tests as well as the inspection of the quality management system to ensure the high level of quality.

The following Ferrero products are regularly tested for their quality:

The scope of investigation for Ferrero products
The statutory controls of the products and production facilities are carried out in the manufacturer’s own and in accredited laboratories such as those of the SGS INSTITUT FRESENIUS.
Ferrero has raised the bar even higher and for many years has commissioned SGS INSTITUT FRESENIUS to subject a range of products to additional regular controls.
As part of its tests, SGS INSTITUT FRESENIUS examines the composition of the sealed products, including the raw materials used, checks parameters relevant to food law, as well as the information from Ferrero and assesses the product.
Essential components of the regular checks are:
- covert purchase of the Ferrero samples
- sensory, microbiological and chemical-analytical control of the end product – independently and in addition to the Ferrero quality assurance
- Review of nutritional values, vitamins, and minerals
- Control of raw materials for freedom from residues and contaminants
- Annual audit of the production facility
