A: From outside the company, from either side.

Q: E-mails, calls?

A: Yes. It didn’t affect sales. Things like that don’t really have an impact on sales.

Q: Did you struggle a lot with the decision? You could have just done what most companies did, say nothing.

A: We thought about it a lot. At the end of the day, General Mills has spent at least the last 30 years building a very diverse company. We’ve included everybody and those are our values. We didn’t think the amendment was in the best interest of the company and the state.
