SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- State officials hope they have come up with a deal sweet enough to lure chocolate giant Hershey to Utah.

Hershey is looking to open a new western distribution center.

The Governor's Office of Economic Development Board has approved an incentive package for the company to locate the facility at the Business Depot in Ogden. Ogden is also working on a local incentive package.

Cities in Arizona and Nevada are also trying to get the Hershey project.

Hershey issued a statement saying the company appreciates the offer and is considering its options.

Procter & Gamble also announced this week that it would open a processing plant in Box Elder County.
