Hormel Foods Corp. announced today it was recognized for outstanding partnership in two categories by Walmart at the world’s largest retailer’s year-end award ceremony.

Hormel Foods was honored for providing superior customer service and for being a collaborative, innovative and valued partner during its 2013 fiscal year. Included in the recognition were the company’s subsidiaries Jennie-O Turkey Store and Farmer John, its Specialty Foods business unit, and MegaMex, the joint venture between Hormel Foods and Herdez del Fuerte.

In 2012, Walmart named Hormel its Supplier of the Year for overall best supplier performance and partnership.

The two awards Hormel received for fiscal year 2013 were Dry Grocery Supplier of the Year and Food Supplier of the Year.

“To continue to be recognized by Walmart for our partnership and efforts to drive sales is truly appreciated by the entire organization,” said Patrick Connor, Hormel’s senior vice president of sales to Walmart. “It’s recognition of our hardworking team and further solidifies our continued growth and alignment strategies with one of our top customers.”

The award ceremony was held March 8, in Orlando, Fla.
