Inspired, Creative and Original

The Ferrero Group began in the picturesque town of Alba, Italy, more than 70 years ago and has since grown into a global company in the confectionary market. Did you know that the amount of Nutella produced in one year weighs the same as the Empire State Building?

The 21st century experienced the largest growth of ciabatta bread on sandwiches across the United States. Ciabatta is now available throughout many pizza, fast-casual, casual and fine-dining establishments.
