Nutella Responds to the Controversy

The conversation went down and Twitter was ready to start a fight. Soon, the brand stepped in and cleared all the misunderstanding saying that most of their industrial plants are certified Halal ‘by a third party’. They apologized for the misleading tweet and laid out the facts.

“All Nutella sold worldwide is suitable for Halal consumption. Over 90% of the industrial plants producing Nutella are already Halal certified by a third party and we are in the process of certifying the remaining plants. We apologize for the mistake made in our earlier tweet.”

Phew! So there you have it guys. Nutella is Halal, just not Halal certified. But you can still enjoy it with bread, put it in a dessert or eat it on its own.
