General Mills (GIS) was founded in 1866, owning just a single flour mill at the time. After expanding into a number of different industries like restaurants, toys, and even apparel, the company refocused completely on consumer foods in 1995. Today, General Mills sells a diversified mix of packaged meals, cereal, snacks, baking products, yogurt, and more. No category accounts for more than 20% of total sales, and General Mills is also one of the largest U.S. producers of organic packaged food (over 5% of sales are from natural and organic products). The company’s largest brands are Cheerios, Betty Crocker, Yoplait, Pillsbury, Nature Valley, Old El Paso, and Haagen-Dazs, with each brand generating over $1 billion in annual sales.
