General Mills last week announced it will accelerate its commitment to more than double organic acreage from which it sources ingredients, and expects to meet a goal of 250,000 acres by 2019. This is tied to its goal to grow net sales from natural and organic products to $1 billion by 2019, a year ahead of its previous target. General Mills already participates along with other companies in OTA’s Grain, Pulse and Oilseed Council, an industry forum to increase the supply of organic grains, oilseeds, and pulses.
