Ferrero celebrates sustainability milestones at Lithgow

Ferrero Group Australia has celebrated several significant sustainability milestones and the launch of a new campaign at its Lithgow factory in NSW.

The milestones include the reduction of water usage by more than 30 per cent at the Lithgow factory over the past financial year, as well as the completion of the second phase of its solar project, with solar now providing 15-20 per cent of the factory’s total electricity needs.

Derek Lath, Institutional Affairs Director of Ferrero Australia, said Lithgow’s solar project is an important part of its energy transition journey in Australia.

“Currently, solar provides 15-20 per cent of Lithgow’s total electricity needs, and we’re looking forward to exploring the next phase of our solar project.

“These latest achievements are part of Ferrero’s global commitment to deliver on our sustainability strategy to improve peoples’ livelihoods and protect the environment.”

Massimo D’Ambrosio, Managing Director of Ferrero Australia, said the visit to the factory marked several significant milestones.

“We are very proud of this achievement and will continue expanding our sustainability initiatives to play our part in protecting Australia’s natural environment.”

The event was also an opportunity to thanks Ferrero’s 96 full-time Lithgow team members, and was attended by Deputy Premier, Member for Bathurst and Minister for Regional New South Wales Paul Toole, and Lithgow Mayor Maree Statham.

Toole said he was please to be in attendance to thank Ferrero’s Lithgow workers for their outstanding contribution to the local manufacturing.

“The Lithgow factory is an incredible example of how long-term investment, supported by a dedicated workforce and commitment to innovation, is key to supporting growth in our local communities.”

Also announced at the event was the Nutella Loves Aussie Recipes collection, which celebrates the unique landscapes and flavours of Australia, with new recipes inspired by ingredients from each location.

Each jar is themed around a much-loved and iconic Australian destination, from the Great Barrier Reef to the Barossa, Bondi Beach and Cradle Mountain.
