Whether we’re adding health benefits to food or finding new ways to reach people, innovation at General Mills is about connecting smart people.


At General Mills, each aspect of developing, making, distributing, marketing and selling a product is connected and collaborative. General Mills' approach to innovation — "Innovation Intersection" — connects employees with inventors, academics, entrepreneurs, suppliers, customers and consumers throughout the innovation process.

It goes beyond new product development to include everything from boosting the company's environmental sustainability efforts to finding new ways to connect iconic brands with today's on-the-go consumers.

While General Mills is known for breakthroughs in food technology, our rich history of innovation goes beyond the grocery aisle to include philanthropic initiatives, the creation of popular advertising icons, and even the development of ALVIN, a deep sea submarine.
