We are proud of the progress we have made as a leading corporate citizen in our industry and are excited to share our 12th annual report with you.
Welcome, and thank you for visiting the 2017 Hormel Foods Corporate Responsibility Report. At Hormel Foods, we know that building social value and creating economic value are not competing goals, and we are inspired to do our part in making the world a better place. In fact, we continue to be recognized for our efforts. We were honored to once again be named as one of the 100 Best Corporate Citizens by Corporate Responsibility Magazine. In addition, we received a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index and were named a Best for Vets Employer by Military Times.
We recently launched our corporate responsibility platform called Our Food Journey™. This journey consists of producing food responsibly for customers and consumers around the world by focusing on:
- Investing in our people and partners;
- Improving communities around the world; and
- Creating products that improve the lives of others.
I’m pleased to share the following 2017 highlights in these areas:
I would like to thank all of our team members worldwide as well as our partners and suppliers, as it takes everyone working together to achieve these outstanding results. And while we celebrate these achievements, we realize there is more to accomplish on this journey.
