Doing right by Mother Earth

Here at General Mills, we love our planet so much that we’ve put forth big ideas to help restore it back to a healthier state. It starts with rethinking how we source, produce and package.

Supporting communities while restoring the health of our planet

Our business is rooted in the earth. Threats to natural resources impact the livelihoods of farmers and communities and our ability to feed a growing population. We’re using our scale to increase resilience and make a positive difference.
