2016 Report
Our Food Journey™
Search

The 2016 Hormel Foods Corporate Responsibility Report follows the G4 Guidelines developed by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the internationally recognized standard for responsibility reporting.

We use the Food Processing Sector Supplement, which is part of the G4 Guidelines but also includes other topics specific to our sector. These guidelines help us determine topics not addressed by stakeholder feedback. This chart explains the indicators that are included in our report and where they are located online. The 2016 Hormel Foods Corporate Responsibility Report is “in accordance” with the core option.

Additionally, our 2016 report is our third report that has been formally reviewed by the Hormel Foods internal audit department. At this time, our report is not externally assured.
