Top score for Ferrero

Ferrero palm oil

In its recent Palm Oil Buyers Scorecard, which evaluates global companies for their support of sustainable palm oil, World Wide Fund For Nature (WWF) lists chocolate producer and confectionary company Ferrero as number one out of 173. 

With a score of 21.5 out of 22, WWF ranks Ferrero as leading the industry of major global retailers, consumer goods manufacturers and food service companies. 

“Only one company, the consumer goods manufacturer Ferrero, has scored over 20 points (out of the maximum 22), sending an encouraging signal to the rest of the industry that sustainable and deforestation-free palm oil is achievable,” a WWF press statement said.

Ferrero is especially recognised for its efforts to address the issue of deforestation in tropical areas and for the transparency of its supply chain.
