What are important initiatives that you make a priority in your home? What do you consider when choosing what companies to support? When I am loyal to a company it's usually because of the price and quality of their products. Other things I look for are whether the company supports a cause or charity and if they are taking measures to reduce waste in packaging.
In mid-May, Hormel Foods released their annual Corporate Responsibility Report where they describe the progress of their corporate responsibility initiatives. A few of the 2011 initiatives that had great results included:
Reduced packaging by 4.2 million pounds
Hormel Cure 81 retail hams, 14 percent reduction
Hormel Compleats microwave meals, 18 percent reduction
Hormel chili, 16 percent reduction
Contributed more than $5.5 million to local communities and hunger initiatives, including donating to 16 hunger relief organizations in Hormel Foods plant communities
