Milton Hershey : 

Milton Hershey By: Layanne Abu-Bader

Childhood : 

Childhood Milton S. Hershey was born on September 13, 1857 on a farm near Derry Church, a little community in Pennsylvania. He was the only surviving child in the Hershey family which was raised by Fannie and Henry Hershey. His mother raised him in the strict discipline of the Mennonite faith. Frequent family moves disturbed his schooling and left him with a certain amount of education because he only completed the fourth grade. He did not have the best childhood ever.

Candy life : 

Candy life Following a four-year apprenticeship with a Lancaster candy maker, he established his own candy making business in Philadelphia. Unfortunately this business failed as he made his next two attempts in Chicago and New York. Coming back to Lancaster, PA 1883, Milton established the Lancaster Carmel Company, which very quickly became an amazing success. Because of that business he was known as a candy maker.

Chocolate : 

Chocolate In 1883 at the World Columbian Exposition Hershey became amazed with German chocolate-making. He bought the equipment for his Lancaster plant and soon enough he was making very many chocolate creations. In 1900, Hershey sold the Lancaster Caramel Company for $1 million dollars in order to start his very own chocolate-making business. After three years he decided to come back to Derry Church to build a bigger andbetter chocolate factory.

Chocolate : 

Chocolate Because Milton loved milk chocolate (at that time it was called Swiss luxury product) he decided to make a new formula for milk chocolate that would soon go on the market and would sell to millions. In 1903 he started on what became the worlds biggest chocolate producing plant. In 1905 the facility was completed, it was designed to manufacture chocolate by using the latest mass production techniques. Soon “Hershey’s milk chocolate” came out and quickly became the first nationally marked product.
