About Maria Franca Fissolo

Italian businesswoman Maria Franca Fissolo and her family have an estimated net worth of $25.1 billion, according to Forbes. She is the wife of the late Michele Ferrero who was the owner of chocolate manufacturer Ferraro SpA, Europe’s second biggest confectionery company. The company was founded by Michele Ferrero’s late father Pietro during the the World War II; when he built a laboratory to supply his wife’s pastry shop. The origin of the Nutella was originated from the resourcefully rationed cocoa, the region’s abundant supply of hazelnuts. Michele Ferrero died in February 2015 and left the sweet corporation to his wife and children. Ferrero SpA’s subsidiaries are Nutella, Ferrero Rocher, Mon Cheri, Kinder Chocolate, Kinder Eggs, and Tic Tacs. Maria Franca Fissolo and Michele Ferrero had two sons Pietro and Giovanni who were appointed co-CEOs in 1987. Pietro died following a bicycle training ride in 2011 in South Africa, leaving his other brother to lead the sweet empire entirely. Asides from being the Chief Executive Officer of the company, Giovanni is also a published novelist.
