Hershey is ready to extend its global footprint, and as part of its initiative to drive that growth, the company hosted its first Global Partner Summit, an open innovation forum.
The Hershey reported a net sales increase of nearly 6%, driven by core brand volume. Consolidated net sales were $1.8 billion for the first quarter ended March 31, compared with $1.7 billion for the same period last year.
The Hershey Company announced a series of personnel moves it said would help accelerate global growth.
The Hershey Company extended and expanded its NCAA Corporate Partner agreement through 2016.
The Hershey Company recently partnered with the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, Calif. to provide students with a hands-on package-design opportunity.
The Hershey Company has named Leslie Turner SVP, general counsel and secretary, effective July 9.
