Ferrero will invest €40 million over the next four years in its Nutella plant in Normandy, France. The project involves the construction of more storage areas and the expansion of the arrival area for raw ingredients, reports Italia Oggi.
France is not only the largest consumer of Nutella in the world, but also the world’s largest producer of the hazelnut-based cream. In fact, 100,000 tonnes of Nutella, accounting for 25% of the world production, are produced every year from the Villers-Écalles establishment.
Ferrero France, one of the subsidiaries of the Italian group, generates a turnover of over €1.3 billion and employs 1,350 workers.
The new production line should be installed by 2019.
