For more than 125 years, we have been committed to operating fairly, ethically and sustainably for our business, planet, our communities and children through the Shared Goodness Promise. Today we uphold our promise with the values of making a difference, excellence, integrity and togetherness. Behind each moment of goodness with our beloved brands is a team of employees focused on being better stewards of the planet; building thriving communities in the places we call home; and, perhaps most near and dear to our hearts, nourishing the lives of children so they can learn, grow and thrive. It’s a promise that started nearly 125 years ago, with our founder Milton Hershey—the original social entrepreneur who linked the success of his company with supporting children in need through the Milton Hershey School. A man who taught us that the value of our good is not measured by what it does, but by the amount of good it does for others.
