Company Description:

Bringing good to the world
From deeply connecting with customers and employees, to thoughtful leadership and sustainably sourced food — good happens through our commitment to food, people and the planet.

It started with a flour mill
Since our beginnings in a Minneapolis flour mill in 1866, General Mills has always been ahead of the curve when it comes to serving with purpose — and we’re just getting started.

For more than 150 years, we’ve made food with passion — having fun and staying true to our values along the way.

Food: We’re committed to putting people first by improving the variety, nutrient density, affordability and accessibility of our products.

The Planet: Our mission is to support thriving farmers and communities while regenerating planetary health.

People: We bring together remarkable people, bonded over our love of food — people who are hungry for what’s next.

Community: Our service partnerships and employee engagement are anchored in advancing equity and building resilient communities.

Food for the whole family
Bringing good to the world means serving everyone. Our portfolio is made up of more than 100 brands around the world. We’re known for quality, innovation and food families love.

From Gold Medal Flour, the #1 selling flour in the U.S., to Nature Valley, the granola bar that inspired an entirely new grocery category, to Wanchai Ferry dumplings, which began on a wooden cart in Hong Kong — every General Mills brand has its own rich story to tell.
