Ghana malnutrition effort gets lift from Hershey

HERSHEY, Pa. (AP) — The Hershey Co. plans to build and operate a peanut processing plant aimed at fighting malnutrition in the African nation where it obtains much of the cocoa it uses to make chocolate.

The plant will partner with Project Peanut Butter, a pediatrician’s program to distribute a peanut-based, nutrient-enriched food to malnourished children in rural Ghana.

Hershey says the West African nation is the source of much of much of its cocoa and one of the top 10 peanut-growing countries in the world. The company says it will also be working with Project Peanut Butter to process peanuts sourced from local farmers.
