Food products that are designated as kosher must meet the rules and standard of Jewish Dietary Law.

Hershey has chosen the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregation (OU) to certify its products as kosher. To have a product approved as kosher, the facility, equipment and ingredients must be reviewed and certified by the OU. After all this is completed, Hershey submits the finished food product for certification.



Nearly all of our chocolate products and some of our non-chocolate products have been certified kosher by the OU and bear the OU symbol on the package.
