Everything we do is rooted in a passion for goodness – a passion that started with our founder, Milton Hershey. And, really, it just started with a few simple ideas: providing affordable chocolate, a progressive workplace, and living out a dedication to helping kids in need. In working to bring those ideas to life, we’ve had the opportunity to bring goodness to the world in so many ways.
We started with humble roots and a simple five-cent Hershey’s bar. Now, we make more than 80 brands that are enjoyed around the world, including such iconic favorites as Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bars, Hershey’s Kisses Chocolates, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, as well as delicious snacks like Krave and Hershey's Snack Mix. And we’re spreading the goodness to more people than ever, with our beloved brands gaining popularity in Europe, South America and Asia.
While our home is in the farmlands of central Pennsylvania, we continue to expand manufacturing and sales locations around the world, so that everyone can share the beloved brands and values that have defined our company for more than a century.
We have 18,000 remarkable employees spread across the world, and we share a unique passion for helping. Together, we’re driven to use the success of our company to give back to the communities in which we live in and do business. Learn more about how we help children learn and grow.
Our people share a deep connection to the company and our brands, and we also share a unique sense of integrity, commitment and dedication to making a difference. This marriage of purposes forms the values of our diverse global team.
