Letter to the Editor

Hormel Institute

Tuesday, September 13, 2005

Dear Editor,

I enjoyed Walt Sehnert's story on the Hormel connections within Austin, Minn.

I would like to clarify that the Hormel Food Co. has its own internal research and development department.

The Hormel Institute is part of the University of Minnesota. The Hormel Institute, University of Minnesota is generously supported by the Hormel Foundation and Hormel Foods Co. but our research agenda is determined by our faculty and Executive Director, Dr. Zigang Dong.

The Hormel Institute, University of Minnesota is researching natural, non-toxic alternatives to chemotherapy.

I think your readers would find our work fascinating and relevant to their health.

Please contact me if I can answer any questions or provide information of interest to your readers.
