General Mills Internship Profile
Fruit Roll-Ups. Wheaties. Cheerios. All of these and more are produced by food conglomerate General Mills, which started out as a single flour mill perched on the banks of the upper Mississippi River in 1866. Charles Pillsbury—the man behind the omnipresent doughboy— purchased the mill in 1869. The company introduced Wheaties (1921), Bisquick (1931) and Cheerios (1945), and purchased Chex in 1997. General Mills also produces Betty Crocker dessert mixes, Progresso soups, Green Giant vegetables and Pop Secret popcorn. Today, General Mills continues to grow—it reported global net sales of $16 billion for 2009.
