Brands Produced at Rochelle Foods

  • Hormel®Compleats® products

    Hormel® Compleats®products are affordable, real, stick-to-your ribs meals that are ready in 60 seconds with no prep, clean-up, or freezer required. Hormel®Compleats® products deliver moments that make everyday life more satisfying.

  • Hormel®Black Label® Bacon

    For more than 100 years, we have pushed bacon forward. Hormel® Black Label® bacon was the first to smoke bacon with cherrywood. Then we smoked pecanwood, applewood and the naysayers. In a world of automated machines, we actually use real hands to hand-rub our pork bellies with a proprietary brine of seasonings.

  • Hormel® deli ham

    Hormel® deli ham meets the needs and tastes of even the most discerning palates. You can find them at your local deli or in the deli section at your favorite supermarket. Delicious deli ham sliced fresh, how you like it.
