Hormel supports farmers coalition

The makers of the Happy Little Plants products have announced a donation of $10,000 to support the efforts of the National Young Farmers Coalition, a nonprofit organization dedicated to agriculture and helping young farmers.

The Happy Little Plants brand is a new plant-forward, protein offering from Hormel Foods.

According to Bryan Kreske, manager of the Hormel Foods business incubator, supporting the next generation of farmers reshaping the country’s agriculture systems is important to the Happy Little Plants brand and Hormel Foods.

“We are excited to support the efforts of the National Young Farmers Coalition and look forward to additional opportunities to work together in the future to expand our efforts and make a difference.”

“The future of our food system depends upon a new generation of farmers and ranchers,” said Martin Lemos, co-executive director of the National Young Farmers Coalition. “We’re grateful to the makers of the Happy Little Plants brand for their investment in the future of farming in the United States.”
