General Mills On Target for Solid Waste Reduction Goal

General Mills Inc. is halfway to its 2015 goal of a 50-percent reduction in solid waste generation, the company said in its latest sustainability report.

The Minneapolis-based food retailer also said in a news release that it has improved the packaging for 27 percent of its sales volume, more than halfway to its 2015 goal of 40 percent.

Solid waste and packaging were two of the company’s three sustainability goals. With the company’s third goal, General Mills achieved a 20-percent reduction in its water usage.
