ABOUT THIS COMPANY:Who is General Mills, and what's he doing in my breakfast?
With such well-loved breakfast brands as Trix, Wheaties, Chex, Lucky Charms and Cheerios, among others, General Mills is the second-largest manufacturer of cereal in the United States, trailing only the Kellogg Company. General Mills is also the name behind Gold Medal flour, Betty Crocker baking mixes, Pillsbury frozen bread and more. But the product lineup encompasses all things edible, including Colombo and Yoplait yogurt, Green Giant frozen and canned vegetables, Progresso soups and Old El Paso Mexican seasonings. Small Planet Foods, General Mills' natural and organic products group, sells products including Muir Glen soups and Cascadian Farms vegetables. General Mills has interests in a number of joint ventures, such as 8th Continent, a 50/50 partnership between the former miller and DuPont which markets and sells soy-based products. Meanwhile, Cereal Partners Worldwide which General Mill owns with Nestle markets breakfast cereals in 130 countries worldwide. In the third quarter of 2009, General Mills' net sales were about $14.7 billion.
