ABOUT THIS COMPANY:How sweet it is!
The Hershey Company, among North America’s largest confectioners, boasts a name that’s become practically synonymous with chocolate—and for good reason. The enterprise provides cacao-derived goodness under more than 60 brand names in about 50 countries worldwide, in forms ranging from bars and Kisses to Kit Kats, York Peppermint Patties and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Also on offer are fine confections from acquisitions Scharffen Berger, Dagoba and Joseph Schmidt, fit to quell even the most refined chocolate craving. But the company’s no sweets snob—it also churns out treats such as Twizzlers and Jolly Ranchers, chocolate for dessert and baking, and Bubble Yum gum and Ice Breakers breath-freshening gum and mints. Selling all these sweet treats has earned the firm a sweet spot, too: No. 471 on 2008’s Fortune 500.
