      “It is great to see the broad representation of Hormel Foods products in the Progressive Grocer Editors' Picks,” said Scott Aakre, vice president of corporate innovation and new product development. “This is one more indication that our innovation efforts are aligned with the needs of consumers and our retail customers.”

      Some products were honored as full lines, while others were recognized for individual varieties. Products came in from nearly every category, with snack foods most prevalent.

      “Our staff is truly nourished, not only by the food itself, but by the creativity and innovation that went into developing these many fine products,” said Jim Dudlicek, editor-in-chief, Progressive Grocer. “Our favorites among the winners delivered on the idea of providing solutions – making life easier for consumers through simpler preparation, value-added function or other qualities designed to take the hassle out of daily eating or home routine occasions. And, of course, good taste was a must.”
