Our blog has a new look

Our home base on the web for sharing our stories and perspective and sparking conversations about General Mills has a new design.

It replaces our original layout for “A Taste of General Mills,” which launched just over two years ago, in May 2011.

Has it really been two years already?


In those nearly 25 months, more than 70 General Mills employees from around the world have blogged at least once – we call them “G Bloggers.”

That’s insight into the company, our brands and our people that was just not available before.

Personally, it’s been a great experience for me to see the blog’s authors, audience and reach grow month-by-month.

But our Global Communications team felt it was time to give the blog a fresh look.

We redesigned it because we wanted you to have a better experience navigating the site, reading the stories we share, and to make it easier for you to share them across your social accounts (Thank you!)

Here are the primary changes on A Taste of General Mills:

  • We consolidated our categories, from nine to six, with navigation at the top of the home page.
  • We now feature six of our latest posts in a rotating banner that you also can advance, across the top of the home page, with the eight latest posts underneath.
  • We have callouts for our most-viewed and most-commented on posts.
  • We placed social sharing icons next to each post, that follow you as you scroll down to read.

What doesn’t change is our commitment to telling great stories about our company and brands – many of which you won’t see anywhere else online – to keep you informed about what’s happening at General Mills.

We’re also paying attention when you comment or ask a question. We may not always be able to provide an answer. But we appreciate the feedback and we do pass it on to our company and brand leaders.

Thank you for helping us build A Taste of General Mills over the last two years and for being with us on our blogging journey.

Please continue to let us know how we’re doing and what you’d like to see.
