Earlier this week there was talk that there could of been a world shortage of Nutella, thankfully that won’t be the case!
The strike at the world’s largest Nutella plant has ended after a week. The Paris, France plant produces 600,000 jars of Nutella on a daily basis. Nutella fans were starting to hoard the hazelnut spread because they feared the strike could go on for months.
Ferrero, the owner of the hugely popular hazelnut and chocolate spread, said Wednesday that access to the factory was reopened overnight and that “normal activity” had resumed at the site.
According to the union, the 160 of the factory’s 350 workers who took part in the walkout demanded a 4.5% salary increase, one-time 900-euro ($1,000) bonuses and better working conditions. It was unclear whether their demands had been granted.
