Profile

Hershey is a leading confectionery manufacturer in the U.S. (nearly a $25 billion market), controlling around 45% of the domestic chocolate space. Beyond its namesake label, the firm's mix has expanded over the last 85 years and now consists of more than 80 brands, including Reese's, Kit Kat, Kisses, and Ice Breakers. Hershey's products are sold in about 80 countries, with just 10%-15% of total sales coming from markets outside the United States, including Brazil, China, India, and Mexico. The firm has sought inorganic opportunities to extend its reach beyond its core confection business, with the deal to add Amplify Snack Brands and its Skinny Pop ready-to-eat popcorn to its mix and its Pirate Brands (including the Pirate's Booty, Smart Puffs, and Original Tings brands) acquisition.
