Business as a Force for Good December 2, 2020 by Leah Wolfe

A few themes we explore in this session:

  • What role should enterprise food brands be playing in the transition to regenerative?
  • What does a hybrid of sustainability and philanthropy look like for a company like General Mills?
  • How can a company maintain its commitments to regenerative agriculture amid supply system disruptions?
Mary Jane Melendez General Mills

We can change the way that we source food. We can change the way that we engage with partners and help to reverse harmful trends. If we don’t, we are not going to be in business for another 150 years. We’re not going to be able to feed a growing planet.

General Mills understands that we have a role to play and that’s what I’m excited about. I think one of the opportunities that we have before us is to really think about how our brands–beyond our natural and organic brands– embed this whole concept of regeneration into the way they’re operating, into the way that they talk to consumers, and to the way that they market their products.
