NUTELLA® is a registered trademark of Ferrero S.p.A.
The use of NUTELLA® hazelnut spread in the preparation of other products does not automatically grant a right to use the NUTELLA® trademark. However, certain limited use is authorized by Ferrero S.p.A. under the terms and conditions set forth below.
These Terms & Conditions (“T&Cs”) exclusively apply to independent retailers operating in the field of sale of foodstuffs and/or foodservice (e.g. independent bakeries, restaurants, pastry-shops or cafés) (hereafter “Retailers”), in United Kingdom and Ireland and intend to refer to NUTELLA® hazelnut spread as a characterizing ingredient of one or more of their products (hereafter “Product”). These T&Cs and the right to use granted herein applies to single store independent Retailers only; any retailer of foodstuffs and/or foodservice operator that is part of a “chain” or acts as a franchisee is not considered a Retailer and therefore is not authorized to use to the NUTELLA® mark under these T&Cs. If a retailer is uncertain as to whether it is an authorized Retailer, it may contact Ferrero Foodservice directly.
Ferrero can amend or withdraw the T&Cs, and Retailers agree to check at least every six months whether T&Cs have been modified or withdrawn. Retailers agree to comply with and to be bound by the most up-to-date version of the document.
- You may only use the NUTELLA® trademark to portray to the consumer that NUTELLA® hazelnut spread is an ingredient within or on top of an authorised food product (“Product”) as set out at the end of these T&Cs. You may not use the NUTELLA® trademark in out-of-store advertising and material.
- The Product must be both made and sold only and exclusively within the Retailer's location, in a safe and healthy environment in accordance with all applicable laws, regulations and local ordinances.

- Use of the NUTELLA® trademark must always be:

- followed by the ® symbol of a registered trademark.
- The NUTELLA® trademark cannot be emphasized over the name of the Product.

EXAMPLES OF PERMITTED AND PROHIBITED USES
Where a Retailer offers more than one Product, in-store menu signboards can list NUTELLA® hazelnut spread in the first ingredient position just below one Product’s name. For example:In-store menu signboards cannot list NUTELLA® hazelnut spread in the first ingredient position just below all Product names. For example:In-store menu boards (or portions/subsets thereof) cannot be exclusively dedicated to Products containing NUTELLA® hazelnut spread. For example, the following is not permitted:It is permitted to display jars of NUTELLA® hazelnut spread actually stored and/or used for the preparation of the Products at the point of sale, but only to the extent the jars of Nutella® hazelnut spread are not placed exclusively for ornamental purposes. The use of any point of sale materials (where provided by Ferrero) must be placed in a reasonable manner. For example:Use of an excessive quantity of jars of NUTELLA® hazelnut spread as forming part of a point of sale display rather than intended for actual use (see example below) is not permitted without written permission from Ferrero.
