General Mills Launches The Good Table, New Sauce and Crust Mix for Family Dinner

General Mills launches its newest dinner solutions brand, The Good Table. The new product line of gourmet-style sauce and crust mixes for chicken and fish includes four restaurant-inspired flavors: Parmesan & Herb, Southwest Tortilla and Thai Peanut for Chicken, and Lemon & Herb for fish. The entire line of The Good Table's sauce and crust mixes do not contain added monosodium glutamate, artificial flavors, high fructose corn syrup or colors from artificial sources, making it an excellent choice for family dinner. For families tired of the same old chicken and fish at dinnertime, The Good Table offers a simple way to spice up dinner staples. The Good Table package contains two parts: a coating sauce which keeps meat moist and juicy, as well as crust mix that contains flavorful additions such as tomato pieces, crushed tortilla chips, herbs and peanuts. For a restaurant-inspired meal right from home, consumers simply coat one pound of boneless chicken breast or fish with the sauce, toss with the crust mix and bake. Each The Good Table package also comes with inspired side dish ideas to help families create an easy, well-balanced dinner with better ingredients everyone can enjoy and feel good about. The Good Table products have a suggested retail price of $2.99, and are available at Walmart stores and select retailers nationwide and will be available at additional retailers beginning in October.

General Mills Inc. Closes Frozen Dough Manufacturing Facility in Kaohsiung, Taiwan

General Mills Inc. announced that after several rounds of plant closings and layoffs at home, the company is cutting its international operations as well. The company reported that it closed the frozen dough manufacturing facility in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, that it has operated since 2006. It will offer severance to the plant's 78 laid-off employees. The company has also made what it called a " preliminary decision" to wind down its South African foodservice business and shutter its manufacturing plant in the Linbro Park suburb of Johannesburg. Before finalizing the decision the company will consult with employees and employee representatives. The move would affect production staff and some salaried employees, but did not say how many.
