We Are Hormel Foods - A global branded food company with more than 20,000 team members worldwide, making a difference for our customers, communities and shareholders. We’re not just inspired to make great food, we’re inspired to make a difference for our customers, team members, consumers, shareholders and the communities where we live and work.


Hormel Foods Corporation is an American food processing company founded in 1891 in Austin, Minnesota. Hormel Foods is a Fortune 500 company that manufactures and markets high-quality, brand-name food and meat products globally. While we are over 130 years old, we are just getting started. We developed our Cultural Beliefs in 2016 to get our entire global family aligned, speaking the same language and immersed in a culture of accountability. They help us create a team environment, focused on performance and continuous improvement for our consumers, customers and shareholders.


Our belief is that good business and good stewardship go hand in hand. We invest in our people and partners, we aim to improve communities and the world, and we create products that improve the lives of our consumers. As we continue to grow in size and geography, our purpose statement unites our employees with a single purpose while reminding our consumers why they choose products from Hormel Foods. George A. Hormel said it best: “Originate, don’t imitate.” His vision continues to be our mission, even after 125 years. Innovation drives our growth—delivering exciting new products and keeping our products relevant with changing consumer needs.
