Innovation has long been a cultural centerpiece of Hormel Foods Corporation and today, the company was recognized on Fast Company’s fifth annual list of the 100 Best Workplaces for Innovators.
Developed in collaboration with Accenture, the 2023 Best Workplaces for Innovators ranks 100 winners worldwide from a variety of industries, including biotech, consumer-packaged goods, education, healthcare and many more. Fast Company editors and Accenture researchers collaborated together to score nearly 1,000 submissions, and a panel of eight distinguished judges reviewed and endorsed the top 100 companies, which now includes Hormel Foods for the first time.
Hormel Foods recently unveiled a new center of excellence focused on consumer insights and innovation called Brand Fuel. The Brand Fuel team serves as the company’s hub for consumer insights and brand diagnostics while supporting technology to enable connections with consumers on where and how they shop and eat.
Additionally the company launched its Originate Initiative, an email series that shares many of the industry-leading efforts the company is pioneering today, while sparking conversations about tomorrow and beyond.
