Austin, Minn.

Hormel Foods Corporation (NYSE: HRL) today announced it has been recognized for the sixth consecutive year on the Military Times Best for Vets Employers list.

The company ranked No. 75 on the list, which evaluates many factors that make a company a good fit for military veterans.

“At Hormel Foods, we are grateful for those who serve and have served our country,” said Janet Hogan, senior vice president of human resources at Hormel Foods. “We are extremely proud to be a great workplace for those who have done so much for all of us, and to be recognized for our efforts for the sixth year in a row.”

In addition to this recognition, Hormel Foods recently received a Beyond the Yellow Ribbon award from the Minnesota Department of Military Affairs for its long tradition of supporting American troops, both in peacetime and war.

Hormel Foods actively recruits veterans and service members each year. In addition, the company has an employee resource group that provides assistance to former and current military members and their families as they integrate into the company’s culture, while providing a platform for continued camaraderie throughout their career.

“The companies on the Military Times Best for Vets list earned their rankings through determined efforts to recruit and support service members, veterans and military families,” said George Altman, the Military Times editor in charge of the rankings. “These efforts deserve recognition from the country and should get the attention of veterans looking for a new career.”
