COMMUNITY PROGRAMS

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 Supports Foodbank Australia
Foodbank in Australia is a not-for-profit, non-denominational organisation that seeks and distributes food and grocery industry donations to welfare agencies which feed the hungry. 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. The food is used to prepare mass meals or for distribution in food parcels. It helps feed over 60,000 Australians a day, half of them children who would otherwise go to school without breakfast or to bed without dinner.

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; our intellectual resources; and assistance in promoting Foodbank. At Ferrero, we are proud to be a supporter of Foodbank as they strive for an Australia without hunger.

Ferrero Australia is a proud sponsor of Brainwave.
Brainwave is Australia’s only charity supporting paediatric neuroscience - and the problem is immense in its social and financial effects on our communities. More Australian children are treated for these disorders than any other. Brainwave support families from diagnosis through to treatment and are an on-going resource and network when the child returns home to the family.

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