Does Applegate really support Sustainability?

Applegate is owned by Hormel Foods

. Hormel Foods has a very poor position on sustainability. They have no published policy on sustainability, nor do they have any public statements on their website about their commitment to sustainable practices. Furthermore, they score a 0 out of 100 on the Environmental Defense Fund's (EDF) scorecard, which ranks food companies on their sustainability performance. Hormel Foods has been criticized for their heavy reliance on antibiotics in animal agriculture, as well as their use of high-intensity confinement systems for livestock farming. All of these practices are harmful to the environment and contribute to climate change.
