Bemis Company, Inc. has been recognized by Hormel Foods Corporation with the 2014 Spirit of Excellence Award. Each year, Hormel Foods honors a limited number of suppliers with this well-admired award.

Bemis was selected for providing insights and transformational packaging, delivering sales and customer support, and technical service to the plants − which ultimately enables Hormel Foods to succeed in the marketplace.

“There are only a handful of suppliers who earn this award,” said Eric Winters, corporate purchasing buyer for Hormel Foods. “We understand that packaging plays an important role in the company’s growth. We recognize your hard work behind the scenes and strong partnership with our company.”

Bemis provides Hormel Foods with branded packaging for food and meat products, including: Lloyd’s barbeque ribs, Hormel REV wraps, Hormel Natural Choice deli meats, Hormel Compleats microwave meals, Jennie-O turkey bacon, and more.

Representatives from Hormel Foods traveled to Appleton, Wis., on Tuesday, June 16, 2015 to present the award to Bemis.
