Foodies Throughout History: Milton Hershey

Milton Hershey, O.F (Original Foodie)

Hershey chose his rural location, for example, less from a desire to ensure his factory workers had access to healthy, rural air, than for strategic gain—deep in dairy-farming land to ensure a cheap supply of milk, but close enough to major cities (Philadelphia and New York) to allow cost-efficient distribution.” (from Edible Geography)
