 You know KINDER® (from the old German brand “Kinderschokolade” = childrens’ chocolate), NUTELLA®, Tic Tac®. Those are brands from Ferrero Rocher. In 2013/2014 the Ferrero group with a headquarter in Italy and 24,836 employees used a total of 1,651,194 metric tons of agricultural raw materials and packaging raw materials. To advertise CSR obviously is important to them. They even have http://www.ferrerocsr.com. Too much and yet not enough. Disclosing their EcoVadis Premium Report to the public would be just fine. I asked them (csr@ferrero.com).
