In 1988 the Ferrero group set up one of its main European production units in the heart of the Belgian Ardennes. It has invested nearly 250 million euro since it was set up and employs an average of 900 staff there.
Ninetyfive per cent of the 30,000 tonnes of Raffaello, Schoko Bons, Kinder Surprise, Kinder Boule de Noël, etc. produced every year are exported throughout the world.
Ferrero enjoys true public recognition in Belgium : in Arlon, the road alongside the Ferrero Ardennes production factory bears the name of its founder, Pietro Ferrero!
