Global Overview
global overview

Our people are inspired by purpose.

Every day, we make this purpose real through our brands and culture.

Our devotion to community and planet drives the way we give back and do business.

Our brands - such as Cheerios, Betty Crocker, Pillsbury, Haagen-Dazs and Cascadian Farm, to name a few - are enjoyed in more than 100 countries on six continents.

Globally, our 2016 sales were $16.6 billion.

We are a worldwide team that brings passion and creativity to work each day.

No wonder a Harris poll ranks us as one of the top 20 companies in the U.S., home to our world headquarters.

Our global brand portfolio includes:

Old El Paso
Green Giant
Betty Crocker

We also market strong local brands, such as Jus-Rol in the United Kingdom, Diablitos meat spread in Venezuela, Latina pasta in Australia and La Salteña dough in Argentina.

Cereal Partners Worldwide (CPW), our 50-50 joint venture with Nestlé, is a leading producer of breakfast cereal with brands such as Cheerios, Zucosos, Chocapic, Nesquik and Shreddies.

General Mills also is a leading supplier of baking and other food products to the foodservice and commercial baking industries.

We strive every day to live our mission of Nourishing Lives. We do this through our branded products, the communities that we serve, and the way we work to preserve the environment for future generations.

Since our philanthropic effort - the General Mills Foundation - was created in 1954, it has fueled nearly half a billion dollars in support to nonprofit organizations in our communities.
