Ferrero Rocher is a spherical chocolate produced by the Italian chocolatier Ferrero SpA. The Ferrero Rocher was introduced in 1982 in Europe. Shortly after release production was halted due to a problem with label printing.Michele Ferrero, the credited inventor, named the chocolate after a grotto in the Roman Catholic shrine of Lourdes. Rocher comes from the French and means rock or boulder, the main grotto at the Lourdes shrine is in the rock of Massabielle.
The production process
is secretive, with no smartphones or notebooks allowed inside, and, as
of 2015, few journalists have ever been invited to visit. As of 2015,
the production in the Alba factory is 24 million Rochers a day.
The sweet is produced by machinery. The process begins with flat sheets of wafer with hemispheres moving down an assembly line.The hemispheres of the wafers are then filled with Nutella and a whole hazelnut. Next, two of these wafer sheets, one with a hazelnut and one with only Nutella, are clamped together. The excess wafer is cut away producing wafer balls. These balls are then coated with a layer of chocolate, a layer of chopped hazelnuts, and a final layer of chocolate before the chocolate is packaged.
