Hershey Increases Domestic Wholesales Prices

Chocolate maker Hershey said it increased wholesale prices of its domestic confectionery, which includes standard bar, king-size bar, 6-pack and vending lines, by about 4% to 5%.

The company said this action will help offset its input costs, including raw and packaging materials, fuel, utilities and transportation.

Hershey said it expects minimal financial impact from the pricing in 2007.
