Hormel announces new meat: 'Spammy'


AUSTIN, Minn. (KTTC) -- Monday evening Hormel Foods held its annual meeting. After a record-breaking year of $7-billion dollars in sales, Hormel Foods is going strong.

The company shared news of an expansion at headquarters starting in March. The renovated space is set to be done next December. Conference rooms, an auditorium and employee break rooms are set to be added to the addition. Hormel has been gradually increasing employees at their headquarters and this springs expansion will spur their growth.

Their most exciting project though is International. It involves cases of "Spammy" a fortified turkey based meat, high in protein to help fight malnutrition in children. For the past two years the company has been working with a team in Guatemala through a program called, "Food for the Poor".

The companies CEO explained some new Hormel product lines.

"We added turkey mini pepperonis to the other line that we came out with last year and those are off to a great start. Consumers are enjoying pepperoni as a snack item as well, so we've come out with pepperoni sticks and pepperoni and cheese stick packages," said Hormel CEO, Jeffrey Ettinger.

Hormel's newest line for Kids is just hitting grocery store shelves. It's called "Complete for Kids," with five different meal varieties to ensure kids get the nutrition they need.
