ECO-DESIGNED BOXES

OUR NEW

ECO-DESIGNED BOXES

Ferrero Rocher has embarked on a journey towards more sustainable packaging. From September 2021, we will progressively evolve our Ferrero Rocher boxes to a new eco-design, starting with our most iconic ones: the 16-piece and 30-piece compact boxes.

Our new eco-designed boxes

Our new boxes reduce plastic use and impact on the climate thanks to an innovative material and design. They are made from polypropylene (PP), a widely used and easy-to-recycle material, which maintains our boxes’ transparency and ensures the same high quality of the Ferrero Rocher our consumers know and love. 

Compared to the previous boxes, the new eco-designed boxes have at least 30%1 lower carbon footprint. Additionally, when a box is recycled, it has an even lower climate impact – reaching a 70%1 lower carbon footprint versus the previous box.

¹Findings 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.

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.

Our new eco-designed boxes

Recycling systems are not present in all geographies and they are not equal across different cities, regions and countries. Where present, some are more established and more efficient than others. The final reduction of carbon footprint depends on the efficiency of the recycling stream and on the share of the boxes actually recycled. 

The higher the recycling rate, the lower the impact on climate. This is why we need you: to help reduce our impact on the climate and save our planet’s resources, please recycle the box after enjoying your Ferrero Rocher. Please check with your local municipality for how to properly dispose of the Ferrero Rocher packaging in your area.
