General Mills international sales rose to $1.3 billion, including a 20 percentage point gain from new businesses, notably the 2012 acquisition of Brazilian food maker Yoki Alimentos.

But the international segment’s operating profit was flat over a year ago, due to a currency devaluation in Venezuela, which has forced U.S. firms doing business there to adjust their balance sheets. Without the devaluation, General Mills’ international profits were up 16 percent over a year ago.
