There's more than one way to fight hunger.

So in 2008, General Mills founded Partners in Food Solutions.

It's a non-profit organization that brings together the business and technical expertise of global food companies to help local food processors in Africa. 

It's a new way to fight hunger that helps African mills and food producers develop a sustainable food supply chain.

That's vital to feeding the continent’s growing population.

Quick expansion

THE IDEA for Partners in Food Solutions came to Ken Powell, chairman and CEO of General Mills, after he attended a forum on hunger.

The General Mills global food manufacturing capabilities could make a difference, Powell decided.

Soon, more than 300 General Mills employees were volunteering to build the program.
