It will take along time for Hershey to organize and make many cut backs. Last I heard they are moving a plant out to mexico to cut on labor cost by 10%. Hope all works out well for this chocolate maker, during the hardest times of our economy right now.

Chocolate sells in a depressed econoy better than many other items. They have already implemented a number of reductions to improve their bottom line. They have also added wholesale price increases. By one year they will be above current prices.
