                                        Hormel Foods includes a number of subsidiaries that market their products under separate brand names. Though it might not be obvious that these names are part of our family of companies, their quality and innovation leave no doubt.

                                        When we find a like-minded partner with a product or skill set that enriches ours, one way of capitalizing on the relationship is to form a joint venture. The arrangement allows both companies to retain their identities while we work collaboratively on a new, innovative offering.
