Hershey News

Hey, I think you all know I gave up buying Hershey products because they did not have a clear plan on moving toward some kind of fair trade certification a while back.

They now have a plan to go 100% certification (what certification organization has not been decided) by 2020.

It sounds like a long way off, but it shows progress, and I understand that at the moment, there is not enough fair-harvested cocoa in the world for Hershey to even keep producing chocolate. So this is a pretty big thing. Just wanted to let you all know as I think some of you had stopped when I did.
