Consumers have become increasingly concerned with the responsibility efforts of the companies that receive their dollars, and Hormel Foods Corporation heard their demands loud and clear. Showcasing its commitment to running a responsible company, Hormel Foods was named one of America's Most Responsible Companies by Newsweek Magazine for the third consecutive year.

Jim Snee, Chairman of the Board, President, and Chief Executive Officer, Hormel Foods"This recognition is a continued testament to the outstanding work being done by our company to make a positive impact on our planet and the communities we serve," said Jim Snee, Chairman of the Board, President, and Chief Executive Officer. "Hormel Foods continues to be a leader in the food industry with a dedicated focus on environmental, social, and corporate governance progress. As a global food company, we have an opportunity to lead the way to create a more sustainable and resilient food system. We're proud of all that we have accomplished on Our Food Journey, especially during the pandemic related to food security and education. Our commitment to making the world in which we live a better place has never been stronger."

As part of the company's ethos, Hormel Foods is committed to producing food responsibly for its customers and consumers by investing in its people as well as its partners, improving communities and the world, and creating products that improve the lives of others.

Additionally, Hormel also contributed over $1 million in education donations and launched the Inspired Pathways program that provides a free, two-year-college education for the dependent children of its team members.

Setting goals for the future of the company, Hormel recently announced a new set of corporate responsibility goals that it will strive to hit by 2030. These new objectives follow the company's previous set of goals in which it achieved significant reductions in its packaging, nonrenewable energy use, greenhouse gas emissions, water use, and solid waste sent to landfills. Hormel's new goals are based on a robust key topics assessment process that identified and prioritized the concepts most relevant to the company and its stakeholders.

Wendy Watkins, Senior Vice President and Chief Communications Officer, Hormel Foods"We are honored to be on the list of America's Most Responsible Companies for the third consecutive year," commented Wendy Watkins, Senior Vice President and Chief Communications Officer. "As a global branded food company, we continue to focus on being a thought leader and changemaker in the world of food. Our leadership in food security, environmental sustainability, and even our groundbreaking community college program demonstrates our commitment to our communities, our inspired people, and this planet."
