Kannapolis, N.C. (PRWEB) -- Officials from the North Carolina Research Campus formally announced today that General Mills will be the latest industry partner to establish a presence at the Kannapolis Center. The Research Campus officially opened for business in the fall of 2008 with the intent on being a new hub for agricultural, human health, and nutrition research.

“Having strong technical talent from companies like General Mills at the Campus is important to achieving our mission of producing new knowledge that will help people lead a healthier existence. Their dedication to health, wellness, and nutrition research is uniquely aligned with goal at the Research Campus,” says David Murdock, Chairman, Dole Food Inc., Castle & Cooke Inc., and founder of the North Carolina Research Campus.

“We see this partnership as a unique opportunity to collaboratively uncover solutions that could improve the nutrition of food, including whole grains and vegetables,” said Lane Johnson, director of agricultural research for General Mills. “We are excited to pair our more than 70 years of agricultural research experience with the cutting edge technology and expertise offered by the North Carolina Research Campus.”

General Mills has been leading the food industry with a whole host of positive changes.

Since 2005, the company has improved the health and nutrition profile of products representing 50 percent of its U.S. Retail business. General Mills has reduced the number of calories in its products, reduced fat, sugar and sodium, added vitamins, calcium, whole grain, and increased fiber. The company now has more than 640 U.S. retail products with 130 calories or less per serving, and 460 U.S. retail products with 100 calories or less per serving.

“Partners like General Mills have been our focus since the NC Research Campus was first envisioned and we are extremely excited to add another outstanding corporate partner to our list of industry collaborators,” says Clyde Higgs, Vice President, Business Development for the Research Campus.
