2016 Report
Our Food Journey™
Clean-Label Projects
Nutrition & Wellness

We added two product categories to our sodium reduction efforts and also initiated 47 clean-label projects.

Producing some of the most trusted and well-known food products in the world inspires us every day. We continue to diversify our portfolio of products to offer consumers a wide range of options to meet their needs.

We have a goal to reduce sodium levels in select products within our branded retail portfolio by an average of 15 percent by 2020. In addition, we’ve implemented a clean-label initiative to simplify the ingredient statements of many of our retail products and have set a new innovation goal: to deliver 15 percent of sales from new products developed and launched in the previous five years.

I love Hormel Foods for being an honest, trustworthy and safe company to work for. I love that we are producing quality products that are feeding the world!
