Behind General Mills’ Commitment to a More Recyclable Future

Thursday, December 9, 2021
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM EST

General Mills is committed to reducing the environmental impact of its packaging. This presentation will take you behind the scenes of that effort. A panel of General Mills packaging experts will share what they are doing to make the company a sustainability leader across the food industry.

This presentation will open with a discussion of General Mills’ “sustainability ambition statement” for packaging. Then, it will segue into a pair of case studies involving Annie’s Inc.’s conversion from recyclable plastic to recyclable paper and Nature Valley’s commitment to a more recyclable future. Come prepared with your questions!
