Ferrero breaks ground on Inflation project

“The ability to process high-quality chocolate here in North America is instrumental to building on our important growth in this market, which is advancing Ferrero towards our goal of being a world leader in global confectionery,” said Todd Siwak, president and chief business officer of Ferrero North America. “I am so happy that we are able to reach this important milestone in Illinois, the heart of America’s food and confections industry.”

Ferrero North America, some part of the overall confectionery organization the Ferrero Group, today broke ground on another chocolate handling facility in Bloomington, Illinois. It will be the Ferrero Group’s third facility that measures chocolate, and its first outside of Europe. State and neighborhood pioneers joined Ferrero at a function to celebrate the event, including Acting Director of the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) Sylvia Garcia and Bloomington Mayor Mboka Mwilambwe. Illinois Governor JB Pritzker passed on remarks through video. The new facility is an extension of Ferrero’s existing Bloomington manufacturing center and will produce chocolate for CRUNCH, 100Grand, Raisinets, and other Ferrero products for the North American market. The $75M task will add 70,000 square feet to Ferrero’s present Beich Road impression and add as upwards of 50 new positions. Yearly, Ferrero at this point spends nearly $300 million in Illinois, supporting in excess of 1,300 representatives and 560 providers.

The expansion will create 50 new jobs at the facility.

“With its first-ever US chocolate processing facility, Ferrero will create new jobs and economic opportunity in the Bloomington region, and will carry forward Illinois’ proud food manufacturing tradition,” said Illinois Governor JB Pritzker. “Companies like Ferrero continue to choose Illinois thanks to our talented workforce and our role as a transportation hub for the nation, which makes our state a No. 1 choice for production, innovation, and global distribution. We thank Ferrero for its vote of confidence in Illinois and look forward to supporting the company’s continued success here.”

Ferrero has made several investments in North America over the past few years, including the expansion of its North American headquarters in New Jersey and the opening of new distribution centers in Pennsylvania, Arizona and Georgia. The company’s footprint in the market now totals 8 offices and 10 plants and warehouses in North America, including a cocoa processing plant in Brantford, Ont.

The new facility is set to open in the spring of 2023.
