Eco-designed boxes



Ferrero Rocher is on a journey to make its packaging more sustainable.

Our eco-designed boxes are made from polypropylene (PP), a widely used and easier-to-recycle material¹, carefully designed to reduce our plastic use and impact on the environment while maintaining our boxes’ iconic transparency and ensuring the same high-quality product our consumers know and love.

The benefits of our

Lower Carbon Footprint³

Lower Carbon Footprint if the box is recycled³

² Based on Ferrero internal data (excluding growth)

³ Findings are based on a comparative life cycle assessment of Ferrero Rocher’s packaging (plastic box only), conducted in 2020/Q1 2021 by a third party following the methodological Guidelines of the Product Environmental Footprint (PEF) initiative and using global averages. The 30% emissions reduction considers a worst-case non-recycled end-of-life scenario for the new Ferrero Rocher box (incineration without energy recovery). The 70% emissions reduction considers a best-case full recycling scenario for the new box. The final reduction of carbon footprint depends on the efficiency of the recycling stream and on the share of the boxes actually recycled.

3. Plastic box easier to recycle⁴

The eco-designed boxes are made from polypropylene (PP), which can be recycled in many countries. However, these recycling systems are not present in all geographies. Please check with your local municipality for how to properly dispose of the Ferrero Rocher packaging in your area.

⁴ The recycling programmes available globally for rigid PP packaging are significantly higher than for the previous materials we have used to produce the container.


The change to the eco-designed box

The introducton of Ferrero Rocher eco-designed boxes commenced with our most iconic formats the 16-piece box and 30-piece box. As these boxes are introduced at different times, some previous boxes may still be found on store shelves until the roll-out has been completed. We aim to progressively introduce the new eco-designed boxes across the entire Ferrero Rocher portfolio.


We are committed to evolving towards more sustainable solutions for all our packaging, reducing our environmental impact. Whilst doing this we are conscious to maintain the safety and quality of our products ensuring we continue to meet our consumer's expectations.

The Original Transparent Box

Ferrero Rocher was first introduced in 1982. Since then, consumers have appreciated the original transparent box, which allowed them to see the beautifully wrapped golden specialties.


Ferrero Group’s Commitment

Ferrero Group made the commitment to more-sustainable packaging and signed the Ellen MacArthur Foundation's New Plastics Economy Global Commitment.

Ferrero Group remains committed to designing 100% of packaging to be recyclable, reusable, or compostable.

From 2024 onwards, we will be gradually introducing our eco-designed gift boxes, beginning with the 24-piece gift box.

Our journey continues

Moving towards our objective with the eco-designed boxes

The roll-out of the eco-designed Ferrero Rocher boxes is not the entire journey. We are committed to designing 100% of packaging to be recyclable, reusable, or compostable.

As we move forward, we will continue to update you on our progress.
