The Hershey Company: Built by Purpose

Multimedia with summary

From the moment Milton Hershey founded our company and sought to make chocolate—previously a luxury good—accessible to the masses, we worked to make more moments of goodness in people’s lives.

Over a century later, we’re invited into people’s moments of goodness every day. We’re there for holiday gatherings and campfires; for break-ups and make-ups; for road trips and school trips. It’s a pretty special place to be. Operating sustainably is what wraps each moment in something we can all feel good about.

Our Shared Goodness Legacy—Milton Hershey School

Since 1909, Milton Hershey School (MHS) has offered children from low-income backgrounds in the U.S. a residential, cost-free, quality pre-K through 12th grade education. Now in its 110th year, it is a place where students’ potential meets life-changing opportunity thanks to our shared founder, whose entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to helping youth succeed blended to create an early
“social enterprise.”

Most of the ingredients we use to make our beloved brands come from the earth and are grown all over the world. Climate change, natural resource scarcity and extreme weather all pose risks to the snacks our consumers love, as well as the farmers and local communities we rely on. Hershey is committed to preserving ecosystems, reducing our impact on the climate and conserving natural resources. Not only is it the right thing to do, it’s also critical for the long-term sustainability of our business.
