Hormel Foods has introduced a new branded platform for party trays called Hormel Gatherings.

Hormel's own consumer research has identified 20 casual gatherings a year that consumers celebrate. Hormel Gatherings addresses this trend.

Each party tray will serve six or more guests. Dips come in flavors such as chili cheese, buffalo style chicken, and bacon spinach artichoke.

Varieties of party trays include ham and turkey with cheese and crackers, pepperoni and salami with cheese and crackers, and the Supreme -- with two salamis, cheese, crackers and Peloponnese olives.
