Please join us Wednesday, February 20 for dinner and a presentation by General Mills, the world’s sixth largest food company with over $16.6 billion in sales.

Some of its most recognized brands include Cheerios, Wheaties, Pillsbury, Betty Crocker, Yoplait, Haagen Dazs ice cream, Green Giant vegetables, Nature Valley granola bars, Progresso Soups, Hamburger Helper, and Old El Paso, #1 brand in U.S. Mexican aisle products. General Mills recently expanded meaningfully into China and most recently acquired the largest food company in Brazil.

General Mills is on Fortune magazine's list of the World's Most Admired Companies and was recognized by Forbes magazine in 2012 as "The Most Reputable Company in America."
