Making food with passion for nearly 150 years

We began in the United States with flour mills on the banks of the Mississippi River in Minneapolis, Minnesota. 1866.

We keep going strong today, with our food marketed in more than 100 countries on six continents.

Although our corporate offices are in the United States, about half of our 43,000 employees work outside those borders.

You've heard of our brands. Green Giant vegetables. Cheerios cereal. Betty Crocker dessert mixes and Pillsbury refrigerated dough.

That's just a few. We have many more.

In fiscal 2014, our global net sales were $19.2 billion. 

As of fiscal 2015, we categorize sales into three core business segments: U.S. Retail, International, and Convenience & Foodservice.

Food brings us joy and nourishes our lives, connecting us to each other and the earth.
