Hormel Chili Meals

Hormel Foods debuts Hormel Chili Meals

Chili is a comfort meal that satisfies, but traditional chili isn’t always an option for today’s dynamic consumer lifestyles. Austin, Minn.-based Hormel Foods debuts Hormel Chili Meals. Ideal for a satisfying lunch on-the-go or snack anytime, these shelf-stable meals come in microwave-ready trays and heat up in only 90 seconds.
Hearty varieties include: Chili ‘n Mac, macaroni, beans and beef in tomato sauce; Chili ‘n Penne, chili and beans with penne pasta; and Chili ‘n Spuds, chili and beans with diced potatoes.

According to a recent study by GfK Consumer, a division of GfK Custom Research North America, chili is consumed by 92 percent of U.S. households.

“As schedules become more hectic, time constraints really affect the way we eat,” says Marty Wolesky, product manager. “By offering Hormel Chili Meals in a portable, microwave-ready tray, busy consumers can enjoy chili with a hearty serving of pasta or potatoes anytime.”

Suggested retail price is $2.49.
