Ferrero Reiterates Hazelnut Farming Commitments Following New York Times Report

Nutella-maker Ferrero has reiterated its commitment to ensuring safe working conditions for hazelnut farmers in Turkey, following a New York Times report that suggested that worker exploitation is rife within the country’s hazelnut production areas.
