The company sources high-quality milk from farmers in the dairy-rich region of Paraná, and markets more than 20 different dairy product lines.  The company has significant regional operating, sales and distribution infrastructure, according to General Mills. A GM spokesman said Brazil is “a strategic market for General Mills, and yogurt is a growing category.”
