Food Genius has also announced that Hormel Foods, a leading multinational manufacturer and marketer of high-quality, brand name food and meat products, has chosen Food Genius as a new analytics and insights provider. Hormel will utilize the Food Genius Reports platform, consisting of the most comprehensive restaurant menu analytics dashboard available, off-the-shelf industry research and custom reporting services through Food Genius' Engage!
