Work for the benefit of our community

Following our global principle of “work, create, donate”

In Australia, we are proudly following our global principle of “work, create, donate” and applying this to work for the benefit of our community.

Ferrero and the Lithgow community

Ferrero established a manufacturing plant in Lithgow, New South Wales in 1977. The factory produces the market leading Tic Tac and NUTELLA® products for sale in Australia, New Zealand, South East Asia, and Japan.

As a major employer in Lithgow, Ferrero Australia also supports the local community:

• Assisting fundraising activities for local institutions such as schools, aged-care facilities, hospitals and charities by providing hampers of Ferrero product.

• Providing locally produced Nutella and Tic Tac to the Lithgow Visitor Information Centre. The proceeds from the Visitor Centre’s product sales are used to support Lithgow tourism activities and programs.

we are supporters of Foodbank

Foodbank, the largest hunger relief organisation in Australia, is a non-denominational, non-profit organisation which acts as a pantry to the charities and community groups who feed the hungry. It was first established in 1992 in NSW and now has a presence in every State with distribution centres in all state capitals as well as a number of regional centres. Food and grocery manufacturers, producers and growers deliver their donations to Foodbank warehouses, where the food is sorted and then collected and distributed by welfare agencies throughout Australia.

We are committed to assisting Foodbank by not only donating product but also providing: volunteer teams from throughout our company to work in Foodbank warehouses across Australia; and assistance in promoting Foodbank. Ferrero Australia is proud to be a supporter of Foodbank as they strive for an Australia without hunger.

Making available our people and our product to assist Brainwave

Brainwave is Australia's only paediatric charity providing practical assistance and emotional support to children with neurological conditions as well as their families and carers to positively impact their quality of life. More Australian children are treated for these disorders than any other and the problem is immense in its social and financial effects on our communities. Brainwave runs programs to support children and families including: funding for rehabilitation and mobility equipment; funding for ongoing therapies; a series of family events including weekend camps.

Ferrero Australia is proud to support Brainwave by making available our people and our product to assist Brainwave in its functions and activities.


Ferrero Australia provides product to assist a range of charities that perform services that assist the disadvantaged in our community. Each donation is considered on a case by case basis ensuring that the recipient is aligned with our principles and values.
