Thank you for contacting The Hershey Company.
We appreciate your interest in our company and want to provide you with
information on our Global Supply Chain Transformation.
As The Hershey Company expands internationally, we must make changes to our
manufacturing network to ensure that our company remains competitive in the
global marketplace for the long term. We are making these changes in a way that
is consistent with Hershey’s heritage and values.
When these changes are completed, 90 percent of the items that Hershey sells in
the United States and Canada will be made in these countries. And we will
continue to make Hershey’s milk chocolate bars, Hershey’s Kisses and Reese’s
Peanut Butter Cups as well as a wide variety of delicious products right here in
Hershey, Pennsylvania, and at our other facilities in the United States.
Our Global Supply Chain Transformation program includes a strong commitment to
manufacturing throughout North America. We’re investing millions of dollars to
add capabilities and increase production at our existing U.S. manufacturing
plants, including Stuarts Draft, Va.; Lancaster, Pa.; Hazleton, Pa.; and, of
course, in Hershey, Pa. We are also strengthening our network of manufacturing
partners in the United States and Canada.
Milton Hershey, our founder, and his wife Catherine were extraordinary
individuals. Their legacy includes the town of Hershey, The Hershey Company, and
Milton Hershey School. Today, the Milton Hershey School provides education and
housing to 1,700 disadvantaged children. The Trust that administers the school
is our company’s largest shareholder, making the children of Milton Hershey
School the direct beneficiaries of our business success.
At The Hershey Company, we’re proud of our heritage and values, and of the role
that our company continues to play in the lives of the children of Milton
