our sales as we exit the fourth quarter, with a significant increase," Mr. Harmening said during a July 1 conference call with analysts following the release
of the company's fiscal 2020 financial results.

Finally, the company will look to reduce its leverage to increase financial flexibility.
Mr. Harmening also said General Mills is determined to leverage its scale

machine learning to improve the accuracy of demand forecasting and, thus,
lowering supply chain costs.
In early August, General Mills unveiled plans to invest millions to upgrade its
