CROWN receives ninth Spirit of Excellence award from Hormel Foods
CROWN Food Packaging North America received its ninth ‘Spirit of Excellence’ award from Hormel Foods Corporation for its contributions to enhancing the sustainability and efficiency of the company’s operations. Crown began supplying Hormel Fremont with 12-ounce SPAM cans in 1970. As SPAM took off, the packaging would go on to have several incarnations. However, it was the introduction of the two-piece can more than ten years ago, equipped with the two-finger tab at the top corner, that helped spur a wave of positive consumer feedback. This convenience-enhancing feature is still in use today on the 12-ounce and 7-ounce containers that Crown continues to supply Hormel Foods.
