The Hershey Co. and Barry Callebaut have agreed to extend their strategic supply partnership, first signed in 2007.

Under the extension agreement, Barry Callebaut will continue to supply Hershey’s North American business with liquid chocolate and finished products. The renewed agreement will enable both companies to continue to drive strategic, long-term growth in North America.

“We are pleased to extend our strategic relationship with Barry Callebaut, who has been a key partner to our business for many years, and we look forward to their support of our continued sustainable growth in high-quality chocolate products,” said Tricia Brannigan, v.p. of procurement for The Hershey Co.

Barry Callebaut supplies products to Hershey across the United States, Canada and Mexico.

Steve Woolley, President & CEO Americas of Barry Callebaut, said: “The extension of the long-term supply partnership with Hershey underscores how Barry Callebaut’s reliability and premium chocolate expertise make it the partner of choice for leading industry players.”
