Jay C. Hormel
Hormel, known as the “Spam Man” for his most popular product, pioneered the canned meat business. As a result of his successful marketing campaigns and promotions, 70% of urban Americans used canned meats in 1940, compared with only 18% in 1937. By 1946, Hormel Company was the largest independent meat processing establishment in the U.S.
