General Mills unveils summer/fall 2018 lineup of new product releases
General Mills, Minneapolis, unveiled a new product lineup for this summer and fall that’s geared toward “capturing the moment.”
“We’re thinking bigger about unmet needs that people might have when it comes to their food choices,” says Jodi Benson, chief innovation, technology and quality officer.
“What people need out of their food moments varies from person to person,” adds Lanette Shaffer, senior innovation, technology and quality director. “For some, convenience is key. For others, diet or allergy restrictions play a main role in food choices. And, in some cases, the need is simply to fulfill the craving for a delectable treat. Our new product lineup fulfills each of these needs.”
Here’s a rundown of new products, flavors and varieties:
