"There has never been a better time to be at Hershey."

J.P. Bilbrey, CEO



Continuing Milton Hershey’s legacy of commitment to consumers, communities and children, we provide high-quality Hershey products while conducting our business in a socially responsible and environmentally sustainable manner. At Hershey we’re dedicated to engaging in fair and ethical business dealings in the global marketplace, minimizing our impact on the environment, fostering a desirable place to work and making a positive impact on the society and local communities where we live and operate.



From its roots in central Pennsylvania, The Hershey Company has grown into a powerful global brand that delivers happiness to millions of individuals every day. Our products are marketed in over 50 countries and embody a spirit of genuine joy that is not only available to consumers of all ages, but can also be found in our offices and employees.



It feels good to win and we do it often. In fact, in the US we hold leadership positions in mints (Ice Breakers), chocolate (Hershey’s / Kisses) and sugar confectionery (Twizzlers). Our strong market share has fueled several quarters of growth for Hershey during one of the most challenging economies in recent history. Click the link below to learn more.



When you talk to employees at Hershey you get a sense of the deep pride they have for the organization to which they belong. Our culture is built on the desire to deliver joy, a value that can be seen in the way we work, play and contribute to our communities. The Hershey Company is more than just chocolate; it’s a global entity that respects its role in the marketplace and is focused on making the world--and the office--a better place to be.



Hershey’s recent acquisitions and strong worldwide investments are signs of our imminent and large scale international growth. We’re building teams focused on extending our imprint on key global markets, and we are excited to make international employment opportunities available to our growing workforce.
