The life of a Nutella jar
Transcript of The life of a Nutella jar
By Ella Best
The first step to making a jar of nutella is to sorce and collect the raw materials that are needed to make the product:
-Reduced minerals whey (milk)
-Lecithin as Emulsifier (soy)
-Vanillian: an artificial flavour
-Nutella jars are made from PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) and can be disposed of in council recycling schemes.
The main ingedients come from 5 different countries around the world:
The Hazelnuts come from Turkey. More than 70 million hazelnuts are used wirldwide each day for the production of Nutella. The cocoa comes from Nigeria. The Vanilla comes from France. The Sugar comes from Brazil and the palm oil comes from Malaysia. Some inputs are locally supplied, for example the packaging or some of the ingredients such as skimmed milk.
Where the raw materials come from?
Factories producing Nutella span accross six continents, the main factories include:
- Lithgow, Australia
- Los Cardales, Argentina
- Pocos de Caldas, Brazil
- Brantford, Canada
- Villers-Ecalles, France
- Belsk, Poland
- Vladimir, Russia
- Alba, Italy
The manufacturing of products
We have good reason to believe that the working conditions of Nutella factories are fair and comply with the legal standards as firstly the main factories listed are all in places where laws are in place to ensure a workers saftey and not well known places for using child labour and sweat shops. According to the guardian "Industrial relations at the Alba plant are such that it has never had a strike, and the firm claims an outstanding record of social and environmental responsibility." The Ferreo company in Australia abides by a number of codes including the AANA Code of ethics which we can assume the abide by other countries ethic laws as well.
Working conditions of a Nutella factory
The history of Nutella
Nutella spread, in its earliest form, was created in the 1940s by Mr. Pietro Ferrero, a pastry maker and founder of the Ferrero company. It was world war II at the time and as a result there was very limited supply of Cocoa so Mr Ferrero used Hazelnuts which were plentiful in the Piedmont, to extend the chocolate supply. The first version of Nutella spread was called "pasta gianduja," pasta which means paste, and "gianduja" which is the name of a carnival character famous to the region. In 1964 "pasta gianduja" was named Nutella with the origin of the word being "Nut" and the "ella" giving it a soft ending.
The companies claimed morals and ethics
Packaging: Nutella jars and lids are made from Polyethylene Terephthalate and can be disposed of in council recycling schemes. Nutella jars are also transported in Australian made cardboard cartons made from recycled materials.
Ingredients used: Ferrero is dedicated to achieving its goal of sourcing 100 % sustainable cocoa by 2020 and to achieve independent and credible third-party verification of its cocoa sourcing. This will aim to ensure, among other issues, that trafficking, the worst forms of child labor and forced adult labor will not occur in its cocoa supply chain. They are commited to sourcing sustanible and ethically made ingredients.

Consumption of Nutella
Nutella is an extremely popular spread and item that can be sorced almost anywhere in the world. Nutella is sold in over 75 different countries and over 11 million jars bought each year and one jar of Nutella is sold every 2.5 seconds worldwide.You could circle the globe 1.4 times with the amount of Nutella produced in 2013. The average global price for a 400g Nutella jar costs $4.82 USD.
Distribution of Nutella
The raw materials are shipped to one of the eight factories in the world, by air carrier where they are assembled together in the factories. The completed Nutella is then shipped via semi-truck to one of the 8 main sales offices and/or private warehouse. Agents that supply grocery stores obtain the Nutella from the their new location. These agents transport the Nutella by semi-truck. These agents then supply all major grocery store franchises and other places with Nutella which can be shipped all around the world.
