General Mills makes huge commitments to organic agriculture and native pollinators

General Mills is taking action to "be a force for good" in the food system and breaking down the misconception that "big is bad." Take a look a the company's plans.

"What are things that we can do uniquely in this food culture to advance the supply chain? Where can we bring our 150-year-old advantages to bear?"

—Steve Young, General Mills

Highlights:

  • General Mills and Organic Valley team up to help transition conventional dairy farms to become certified organic.
  • How can we save honey bees? General Mills and The Xerces Society partner to build habitats for native pollinators. 

This session—Growing Organic, Finding New Opportunities for Conversion—was recorded at Esca Bona 2016.
