The Hershey Company ("Hershey" or "Company") sets high ethical standards for the Company and our directors, officers and employees. Integrity was a key value of the Company when it was established by Milton Hershey more than a century ago, and it remains an essential part of our culture to this day.
We are committed to excellence in corporate governance and are blessed with a top-quality Board of Directors. Our Corporate Governance Guidelines ("Guidelines") are reviewed annually by the Board and were last amended on December 6, 2016. These Guidelines, along with the committee charters, Code of Ethical Business Conduct, our Commitment Concerning Advertising to Children (US) and other governance materials, are available on this website.
