5. General Mills (GIS - Get Report) is a global manufacturer and marketer of consumer foods sold through retail stores. The company has manufacturing facilities in 15 countries and a marketing network in more than 100 countries.

Cash from operating activities increased to $441 million in the quarter, up from $178 million from the same quarter last year due to a reduction in working capital during the period.
