Brand that you will be familiar with are Jennie-O Turkey and Spam, which are all household names in their respective categories. Being in the industry is not all bad because foods such as Spam are what I would consider recession proof, and may even pick up sales when the market begins to retract. However, this is a highly competitive arena and there are many different players. Let us take a look at their most recent quarterly numbers to gain a better understanding of where the company currently stands.
