85th Annual Shareholders Meeting
The General Mills Shareholders Meeting marked a milestone this morning, with the 85th gathering of its kind in the company’s history.
Held at the Children’s Theatre Company in Minneapolis, the event largely attracts shareholders from our home state of Minnesota, but it’s not uncommon to have attendees from across the U.S., and the world.
In addition to electing company directors or casting other votes, and hearing about the performance of the business from Chairman and CEO Ken Powell, shareholders also have the opportunity to socialize and sample some of the new products from many of our brands.
It’s been a similar scene for 85 years, as you see in this photo from our 1940 meeting at the Biltmore Hotel in New York City.
We put together this photo slideshow from this morning’s meeting.
