General Mills Inc. Accelerates Regenerative Agricultural Practices

Wall Street Journal writer Kimberly Chin reported yesterday that, “General Mills Inc. said Monday that it will accelerate the adoption of regenerative agricultural practices on one million acres of farmland by 2030.

“The move brings the company closer to its goal of curbing greenhouse emissions by 28% across its supply chain by 2025. General Mills said it has already reduced its footprint by 13% in 2018 from 2010.

Regenerative agriculture focuses on pulling carbon from the air and storing it in the soil, helping protect the health of soil and enhancing the resiliency of natural resources.”

The Journal article added that, “The company said that it would implement on-farm training and education for oat growers in North America, who produce the oats for its Cheerios, Annie’s Cascadian Farm, Nature Valley and Blue Buffalo brands.”
