Hormel production is up over the past year and the Knoxville plant is in full production. It’s a pizza time of year, says Plant Manager Troy Howkshed, and Hormel is looking forward to things getting even better in the coming month. With the Super Bowl right around the corner a lot of pizzas will be sold, proving to be the busiest time of year for Hormel. Hormel products can be found on many pizzas purchased throughout the country. If shopping locally, Hormel pepperoni made in Knoxville can be found at the Knoxville Hy-Vee, Fairway, and Walmart, just look for the 199V. If you spot it, you are supporting the Knoxville economy.
