Our Initiatives

Every aspect of our forward-thinking business model revolves around a solid chain of values that prioritise care for communities and corporate responsibility. This is seen within initiatives such as the Michele Ferrero Entrepreneurial Project, which aims to create jobs and pursue the realization of social and humanitarian projects in the communities where we operate. Or the promotion of sports and healthy lifestyles through programs such as Kinder+Sport Joy of Moving, aimed at young people and their families. And finally, the Ferrero Foundation, which has been spreading services, culture, and nutritional awareness for the last 30 years.
