The Hershey Company reinforces cocoa sustainability efforts by accelerating farmer
and family development in West Africa, where 70 percent of the world's cocoa is

experts in agriculture, community development and government to achieve progress
with cocoa farmers and their families. The programs include certified products,
expanding COCOALINK into the Ivory Coast, opening the HERSHEY LEARN TO GROW farm
and family development center in Ghana, and a $10 million commitment to reduce child

“Emphasizing its performance on key economic, social and environmental issues
that comprise its CSR program, Hershey’s report features ample images and
graphic elements that not only illuminate its citizenship effort, but its iconic
products as well. The 2009 CSR Report also marked the first time the company applied
Global Reporting Initiative guidelines. GRI transparency was a top priority, with
an index that called out indicators that were fully, partially or not addressed.
The Hershey’s report was built upon a CSR framework that includes environment,
community, marketplace and workplace. Particularly compelling are sections on the
challenges of sourcing cocoa in West Africa, South America and Asia, and quotes
from employees about their community efforts. The report is also condensed into
brochure form and provided to Hershey shareholders” - PRNews
