Personal Fact of Milton S. Hershey

Popularly known as the candy man, Milton Hershey was an American manufacturer and entrepreneur who started the chocolate candy revolution in the US. Born in a poor family, Milton was haunted by unfulfilled wishes throughout his life which prompted many of his philanthropic acts in later years, especially establishing a school for needy children. Milton could not complete his education and started apprenticeship at the age of 15.

He failed twice in setting up a business till the time he started the Lancaster Caramel Company, where he wanted to create a perfect formula of caramel candies. Milton had his first encounter with chocolate making in World’s Columbian Exposition; with his caramel business doing well, he wanted to try his hand at chocolates and started the Hershey Chocolate Company.

His aim was to find a way to mass-produce chocolate candies, which was henceforth considered the domain of the Swiss. His business thrived and there were many successful products like Hershey Kiss. Later he concentrated on the packaging of his chocolates. With his growth in business, Milton decided to build something for his community. He built schools, parks and churches in the town where the factory was located. In the later years, he helped the country during the time of Great Depression and helped the military during World War II, by supplying chocolate bars manufactured in his factory
