Hormel Foods Corporation today announced that it has once again been honored as a Category Captain by Progressive Grocer magazine. This prestigious designation recognizes the company’s exceptional performance in the grocery industry and its commitment to providing solutions and insights to drive sales growth in stores in 2023. Hormel Foods was named a Category Captain in the “salty snacks/snack nuts” and “refrigerated dinners” categories.
According to Progressive Grocer, team members from Hormel Foods used insights and analytics to help a large retail customer grow significant sales and volume in the snack nuts category in partnership with the Planters® brand.
Additionally, the company worked with another major discount chain to offer their shoppers affordable and convenient meal-based dinner entrees. After just 26 weeks, the category has grown at twice the rate of total food for the chain.
