Net earnings attributable to Hormel Foods dropped to $241.4 million, or $0.44 per share, from $303 million, or $0.56 per share, in the prior-year quarter, due to impacts from the tax reform.

During the quarter, Hormel saw sales increases in three of its four business divisions. Sales grew in the Refrigerated Foods, Grocery Products and International & Other segments, driven by the new Hormel Deli Solutions division, as well as strength in the Columbus, Herdez, Wholly Guacamole, and SPAM brands. Sales in the Jennie-O Turkey Store segment remained flat mainly due to declines in retail.
