Description

General Mills manufactures branded consumer foods, like ready-to-eat cereals, convenient meals, snacks, yogurt, baking mixes, and ice cream, to retail and food-service customers. Its key brands include Cheerios, Betty Crocker, Haagen-Dazs, Pillsbury, Nature Valley, Old El Paso, Annie's, and Yoplait. The North America retail segment contributed roughly two thirds of sales and above three fourths of operating profits in fiscal 2018. More than 70% of General Mills' revenue is generated in the United States. The firm is poised to bolster its presence in the natural and organics aisle with its acquisition of Blue Buffalo (now its pet segment), a natural pet food brand.
