Hormel Foods Progress and Goals - #HormelFamily

I received products as part of the Hormel Foods Extended Family Blogger program.  The opinions within this post are of my own.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
I've been a part of Hormel Foods blogger program for some time now.  It's a company that I've grown to know more about, from the brands they carry to their business conduct.  The business keeps working towards progressing as a leading corporate citizen in its industry.
Last month, Hormel Foods launched the 2014 Hormel Foods Corporate Responsibility Report, which helps serve as a foundation for how they create value for society. 
Here are just a few of their milestones and achievements for 2014:
In fiscal year 2014, Hormel Foods donated more than $9.1 million in cash and products, and continued their domestic and international commitment to end hunger.  This included donating hams during the holiday season to charities.
In August, Hormel Foods acquired CytoSport Holdings, Inc., the maker of Muscle Milk products.
Hormel Foods worked on several sodium reduction projects, and saw success with their SKIPPY natural peanut butter spread that does not contain preservatives, artificial flavors or colors.
Some 2020 Goals for Hormel Foods include:

Reduce product packaging by 25 million pounds.

Reduce 10% of greenhouse gas emissions.

Reduce 10% of non-renewable energy use.

Reduce 10% of solid waste sent to landfill.

Is there anything you'd like to see Hormel Foods work towards?  What Hormel Foods brands do you consume?

My family likes the Hormel Chili. I think it's great that they are a company that gives back.

I'm glad to see they are looking into more healthy options for the consumers, as well as trying to be environmentally responsible. My family loves their chili. We eat it on hot dogs a lot!
