CUDAHY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Pork King Good, a Cudahy-based pork rind company, reached new heights as a finalist in the Most Innovative Salty Snack Category at the 2023 Sweets and Snacks Expo in Chicago late last month.

The recognition cements the company's name among 300+ product submissions scrutinized in the annual innovation awards program.
