15:25 EDTHSYHershey intends to move to simple, easy-to-understand ingredients
Hershey announced it is beginning a transition to simple and easy-to-understand ingredients. “We will strive for simplicity with all of our ingredients, but we may not achieve it with every product. This is a journey and it will take time. We are equally committed to sharing what we achieve and what we don’t. For ingredients that may not be as simple, we will explain what they are and why we need them to provide the great flavors, aromas, textures and appearances that our consumers know and love,” said CEO John Bilbrey. In 2015, Hershey plans to introduce in the U.S. new products that will feature a lineup of simple ingredients and transition some of its most popular chocolate brands, including Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolates and Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bars, to simpler ingredients, the company said.
