History of General Mills

In the mid 18th century, General Mills was first known to be “Minneapolis Milling Company” which charters rights to operate mills. Years after, the company decided to have a partnership with John Crosby. Minneapolis Milling Company then became “Washburn-Crosby Company.” Unfortunately, after a year an uneventful thing happened, this killed so many personnel and damaged many establishments.

In the early 19th century, the company gave birth to General Mills where it merged into other small milling companies. From then on, General Mills continue to expand.

It was on the year 1990 that General Mills began to merge with Nestle to promote and market cereals as one of breakfast menus in an undertaking they referred to as “Cereal Partners Worldwide.” The said cereals are marketed both in the United States and Europe.

Sometime in October, the company thought of ways to boost the “cereal market” by creating themed-breakfast cereals. The themes mostly revolve in “friendly monster” such as Boo Berry for blueberry-flavored cereals. Chocolate-flavored cereals are with Count Chocula and those who love strawberries should have a constant encounter with Franken Berry.
