US confectionery giant Hershey Foods is mulling a move to put itself up for sale in a deal that could reach US$10bn, it emerged recently. The Wall Street Journal reported that Hershey's corporate board met Wednesday evening to discuss its future options and give a cautious green light to approaching potential buyers, but noted that nothing is set in stone since the stock market is extremely volatile and Hershey's employees have yet to express a reaction to a potential sale.
