Trusted brands the world over
Every day around the world, food made by General Mills is eaten for breakfast, lunch and dinner – and as a snack sometime during the day or evening.
Our brands are known around the world for quality, beginning with Gold Medal flour in 1880, which to this day remains the No. 1 selling flour in the United States. Several of our other brands also occupy the No. 1 or No. 2 market positions – from Pillsbury refrigerated dough to Green Giant frozen vegetables, and from Cheerios cereal to Betty Crocker dessert mixes.
We’re one of the largest food companies in the world, marketing in more than 100 countries on six continents. About half of our 33,000 employees work outside the United States.
In fiscal 2010, our global net sales were $16 billion (including our proportionate share of joint ventures). We categorize these sales into four business segments: U.S. Retail, International, Bakeries & Foodservice and Joint Ventures.
Our mission at General Mills is Nourishing Lives – making lives healthier, easier and richer.
