Milton Hershey (Milton Snavely Hershey) was a chocolatier, businessman, and philanthropist from the United States.

Hershey, who was trained in the confectionery industry, was the first to make caramel from fresh milk. He founded the Lancaster Caramel Company, which attained large exports before being sold to establish a new business selling mass-produced milk chocolate, which had previously been a premium item.

In 1900, the first Hershey bars were sold, and they were so successful that he was able to establish his own business town of Hershey, Pennsylvania. Hershey’s generosity included a boarding school, which was founded for local orphans but now serves about 2,000 students.

For troops fighting overseas during World War II, the firm produced a unique non-melting bar. The Hershey Company, also known as Hershey’s, is a leading confectionery company in the globe.
