    Hershey eyes expansion into better-for-you snacks

    Hershey wants to continue expanding beyond chocolate and sweets in its ongoing quest to become a “snacking powerhouse,” CEO Michelle Buck said. "Our largest focus for M&A is snacking and really on filling out the places that we don’t currently meet demand,” Buck told Food Dive at the 2019 Consumer Analyst Group of New York conference, saying that failure to do so would be a “missed opportunity.” But don’t worry about Hershey turning its back on its core business: Buck also said she wouldn't rule out buying more candies or other products in the sweets category. Since Buck was named chief executive and president of The Hershey Company (NYSE:HSY) in March 2017, the company has acquired Pirate Brands, which makes Pirate’s Booty cheese puffs and other savory snacks, for $420 million, and Amplify Snack Brands, which makes SkinnyPop popcorn and Oatmega whey-protein bars, for $1.6 billion.

    Hershey to raise prices in North America

    Hershey Co. said Wednesday that it plans to put a new pricing structure in place and raise prices in North America in 2019. "Our new approach for pricing is much more precise both in terms of magnitude and breadth," said Michele Buck, chief executive of Hershey, speaking on Wednesday at the Consumer Analyst Group of New York Conference, according to a FactSet transcript. "The P&L impact is expected to build over the course of the year achieving a 2.5% run rate by late Q3. This price increase will help us to maintain our strong investment in the business and will help to offset rising operational costs." Hershey also reaffirmed its full-year guidance, forecasting net sales growth in the range of 1% to 3%, earnings per share growth of 3% to 6% and adjusted EPS growth of 5% to 7%. The FactSet consensus is for sales of $7.93 billion, representing 1.8% growth from the prior year, and EPS of $5.63, an increase of about 5.1% from the previous year. Hershey shares have gained 10.4% over the last 12 months while the S&P 500 index is up 2.2% for the period.
