Retired Hormel Foods executive Joe Swedberg will lead the Farm Foundation board of directors. Swedberg was reelected earlier this month to serve on Farm Foundation’s board of directors and chair the organization’s board of trustees. Farm Foundation is an agricultural policy institute founded in 1933. The Foundation works to bring stakeholders together to discuss evolving issues, explore options to address those issues and understand the potential consequences of all options. The board of trustees includes other retired and current industry executives from companies such as Dupont, BASF, and Deere & Company. Swedberg retired from Hormel Foods in 2015 after serving as the Hormel’s vice president of legislative affairs.
