Careers that nourish lives.

Fortune magazine ranks us as one of the 100 best companies to work for in the United States, and BusinessWeek has tabbed General Mills as one of the best places to launch a career.

We're one of the worlds largest food companies – and you know our brands. 

Our very first brand was Gold Medal flour, which debuted in 1880. To this day, Gold Medal remains the #1 best-selling flour in the United States. Several of our other brands also occupy the #1 or #2 market positions – from Pillsbury refrigerated dough and Green Giant frozen vegetables to Cheerios cereal and Betty Crocker dessert mixes.

While our famous brands and consumer favorites are at home in millions of kitchens, restaurants and stores, General Mills scientists and engineers are always busy creating innovative new products. We are committed to keeping up with emerging food trends and global taste profiles that meet the world’s changing needs and preferences.
