The Company Contrast – General Mills

Each week 2ndVote takes a look at a popular company that scores poorly on the 2ndVote scoring system and then provides some better alternatives for you to easily align your shopping dollars with your values. This series is called The Company Contrast, and the company we will be focusing on this week is General Mills (1.43 – lean liberal).

General Mills is an American multinational manufacturer and marketer of branded consumer foods sold through retail stores.  Its brands include Cheerios, Lucky Charms, Haagen-Dazs, Cinnamon Toast Crunch and many others.  Although General Mills is a popular brand, buying their products may undermine your values do to their support of the leftist agenda.

General Mills scores a 1.43 on 2ndVote’s scoring system due to its support of organizations like Susan G. Komen, HRC, NGLCC and National Urban league.  These organizations use their influence and dollars to further the leftist agenda.  To learn more about all the reasons General Mills scores poorly, you can check out their company page here.

Fortunately, there are better alternatives out there. Food products made by brands such as Flowers Foods and Post are great alternatives to buy without sacrificing your values. The brand’s neutral stance on issues and commitment to its customers is why 2ndVote has deemed them better alternatives to General Mills.
