General Mills provides funds for healthy soil initiative
Global food giant General Mills is providing financial support to University of Minnesota's Forever Green Initiative that grows crops, promoting soil development. General Mills has invested in renewable energy and pollinator protection, Minnesota Public Radio reported. The company has put $3 million into soil health in the last couple of years. "If the front end of that engine — Mother Nature and farming communities — starts to break down, our business becomes either really expensive to operate, or sometimes impossible to operate because we can't get what we need in order to make those products," he said.
