Hershey to add front-of-pack nutrition labeling

April 22, 2013

The Hershey Co. has announced plans to provide front-of-pack nutrition information on its products. Hershey will begin to roll out front-of-pack nutrition information in the second half of 2013 and will evolve its product packaging across its varied pack types over the next several years. Hershey also will be updating its website to provide consumer-friendly access to nutrition information.

Front-of-pack labeling is part of Hershey’s commitment to well-being. The Hershey Co. along with members of the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA), Food Marketing Institute (FMI), and National Confectioners Association (NCA) are voluntarily implementing front-of-pack labeling to share nutrition information, like the Facts up Front program in the United States and a complementary system in Mexico.
