Editor-in-chief Andy Hanacek sat down with Tom Day of Hormel Foods to discuss the company’s plans for its 125th anniversary. This is the first of a series of video Q&As throughout 2016 with Hormel employees, executives and stakeholders on the milestone and celebration.
Andy Hanacek: So Tom, thanks for joining me in this video Q&A here. We’ve got Hormel’s 125th Anniversary coming up in 2016. That’s a big deal, obviously for any company but especially for the meat industry in particular with consolidation over the many decades, so congratulations on that accomplishment. I’m sitting with you because you are a particularly important person when it comes to this year. [You are] the Chairman of the Events Committee for the 125th Anniversary. Obviously, Hormel has got some things in the works. Can you shed some light on what Hormel is going to be doing in 2016 and leading up to 2016 to celebrate this?
