Summary No firm is more closely identified with a single product than Hershey Foods is with chocolate. Founded in 1905, and located in rural Hershey, Pennsylvania, the legendary confectioner found itself for sale in the summer of 2002. The Hershey Trust Company, which owns nearly a third of all Hershey Foods stock and controls three-quarters of the voting stock, elected to re-balance its portfolio and sell the firm to either a Nestle/Cadbury/Schweppes consortium or The Wrigley Company. Caught in the middle are The Milton S. Hershey School, employees, and generations of Hershey residents and retirees. A classic struggle for control of the company plays out in public
