Greg Baskin

Hormel Foods
Inducted 2018

Hormel Foods made its first appearance at the PLMA trade show in June of 1989. For nearly two decades until his retirement in 2015 Greg Baskin was the face of private label business with Hormel.

On the manufacturer side, it’s not always a CEO, but more often one who serves year after year on the front lines of selling, who personifies a supplier’s commitment, and is accountable for his company in the eyes of its retail customer. Greg’s has extended well beyond the interests of his company alone by mentoring countless other PLMA members and giving back to the private industry
