Nutella® was created in 1964 thanks to Mr. Michele Ferrero; it was based on the recipe for Giandujot developed in 1946 by his father,Pietro Ferrero – confectioner and founder of Ferrero – in Italy’s Piedmont area. Nowadays, the popular hazelnut spread with cocoa is available in approximately 160 countries worldwide. Introduced to the US market in 1983, it has since become the number one selling branded hazelnut spread in America. Nutella celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2014.
