Hormel Foods Unveils Asian-Inspired Sweet Garlic Ginger Pork Loin: A Culinary Triumph by Team Member Feng Walkup

HORMEL® Sweet Garlic Ginger Pork Loin is now available at select grocery retailers nationwide. This latest flavor innovation from the HORMEL® brand team brings a unique but popular Asian flavor to the marinated-meats category.

In a testament to the vibrant culture of innovation at Hormel Foods, the company proudly introduces its latest product innovation, the HORMEL® Sweet Garlic Ginger Pork Loin. This mouthwatering creation, now available at select grocery retailers nationwide, is a delightful addition to the marinated-meats category.

The genesis of this unique flavor sensation can be attributed to the creativity of Hormel team member Feng Walkup, an international account manager in the fresh meat category and a dedicated 24-year veteran of the company. Inspired by her family’s cherished recipe, Walkup’s sweet garlic ginger pork became an instant hit when shared at an office potluck. The enthusiastic response from co-workers not only showered praise but also led to a special request for Walkup to bring this delectable flavor to Hormel’s marinated-meats product line—an invitation she gladly accepted.

“This recipe keeps my family and friends coming back for more,” shared Walkup. “I hope our consumers and their families will enjoy it as much as my family and friends do.”

HORMEL® Sweet Garlic Ginger Pork Loin represents a captivating fusion of authentic Asian flavors, carefully crafted by Hormel’s dedicated Research and Development team. Working diligently to replicate the exact ratio of spices and ingredients from Walkup’s recipe, the result is a tender, juicy texture with a succulent Mongolian-inspired flavor that excels whether prepared in the oven, on the grill, or in a slow cooker.

Hailey Tranchitella, HORMEL® associate brand manager for the Retail segment, highlighted the broad appeal of Asian cuisine across generations. She expressed excitement about expanding the company’s Asian flavor offerings, aiming to serve both loyal consumers and captivate new households.

Available at a suggested retail price of $8.99 for a 1.5-pound pork loin filet, HORMEL® Sweet Garlic Ginger Pork Loin embodies the commitment to culinary excellence and innovation that defines the HORMEL® brand.
