At Hormel Foods, we remain dedicated to producing our products in a responsible manner—a founding commitment set by George A. Hormel at the company’s inception 121 years ago. We focus on:

  • Minimizing our environmental impact throughout the production process;
  • Taking care of our animals on our company-owned farms and buying animals from suppliers who adhere to our strict animal care standards; and
  • Operating our overall supply chain with suppliers who uphold our same values.
