Aspen Ideas Festival Underwriters

Underwriters of the 2018 Aspen Ideas Festival represent some of the foremost organizations in the U.S. and around the world. We are proud to present their ideas, their executives, and their important work in the following pages.
With brands like Cheerios, Annie’s, Yoplait, Nature Valley, LÄRABAR, Pillsbury, and more, General Mills has been making food people love for more than 150 years. We’re all about choice, offering breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in-between across 100 global markets.
While serving food, we also make it our business to strengthen our communities and planet. We believe in using our size as a force for good, and we’re doing that by advancing sustainable farming, combating climate change, fighting hunger and supporting local schools.
As a 2018 Underwriter, we’ll explore the future of food waste, soil health, generational dynamics in the workforce, and more. We’ll also bring the snacks!
