Is Yoplait American?


General Mills is licensed by SODIAAL of France to market, distribute and reap all profits from the sale of Yoplait in the United States under a very specific licensing agreement. The USA is the only place General Mills, based in Minneapolis, has such an agreement for any such product. Although one could argue that General Mills has to pay SODIAAL for the license, it is a better alternative than wholly French-owned Dannon. Profits from the sale of Dannon go to France, and the taxes on those profits are paid to the French government and French investors. Profits on the sale of Yoplait in America go to General Mills, who pays taxes to the American government to fund our military and national defense, personnel, social security, the NASA space program, and countless other benefits for Americans.

You may want to patronize your local store/supermarket brands such a Publix, Safeway and Kroger if you do not feel comfortable buying Yoplait. Columbo yogurt is also owned by General Mills, with no relationship to SODIAAL, but is only available in the Northeastern United States.
