Hormel Reorganization Obscures Contribution of Jennie-O Turkey Store


Effective October 2022, Hormel reorganized their operating divisions into retail, food service and international.  The Jennie-O Turkey Store Division was integrated among the new three operating divisions.  Accordingly, the release for the first quarter of Fiscal 2023 on March 2nd did not disclose either volume or cost data for the subsidiary as in previous years.  In reviewing the release, there was no specific mention of the turkey business other than the reality that lower volumes were produced, following infection of flocks with highly pathogenic avian influenza.
