As a member of the Grocery Manufacturers Association, we support the Food Waste Reduction Alliance’s efforts to:

  • Reduce food waste by half by 2020 based on 2016 levels;
  • Increase the amount of food donation; and
  • Recycle unavoidable food waste by diverting it from landfills.

We produce a variety of products to help consumers with portion control, while simultaneously minimizing the amount of waste from leftover food.

Portion Control

We also produce a variety of canned foods and shelf-stable microwaveable meals that have a long shelf life. These products also have an additional benefit – they do not require the energy needed for refrigeration when being shipped or stored.

Shelf Stable

Hormel Foods has a rich history of donating food to those in need. To learn about our efforts in 2015, visit the communities section of this report.
