Nutella®, The Original Hazelnut Spread, was created in 1964 thanks to Mr. Michele Ferrero; it was based on the recipe for Giandujot developed in 1946 by his father, Pietro Ferrero – confectioner and founder of Ferrero – in Italy's Piedmont area. Today, the popular hazelnut spread with cocoa is available in over 170 countries worldwide.
Founded as a family business in Alba, Italy in 1946, Ferrero is the third-largest confectionery company in the world, with distribution in over 170 countries, and a workforce of more than 30,000 people across 55 countries. Ferrero entered the U.S. market in 1969 with Tic Tac® mints, which have become an icon in the breath mint market. Ferrero subsequently introduced Ferrero Rocher® fine hazelnut chocolates, Nutella® The Original Hazelnut Spread® and Kinder Joy® to the U.S. market.
