General Mills adopts and applies the same high safety and quality standards everywhere we do business.
General Mills employees are stewards of our brands, and food safety is integral to this mission.
Operationally, product responsibility lies within the Research & Development and Marketing organizations.
Responsibility for consumer health and safety, product and service labeling is held by the senior vice president of Supply Chain, senior vice president of R&D and the vice president of Quality and Regulatory Operations. Responsibility for Marketing communications is held by the Chief Marketing Officer.
It was back in October 2011 when we held our first “supplier school” – whose theme was “Protect-Educate- Partner” – to help our ingredient suppliers improve food safety, sanitation and quality management.
We are also working to build a safer global food system. We – along with several other food companies – collaborate with the Partnership Training Institute to develop a food safety curriculum that can be broadly shared.
