During the third quarter of fiscal 2008, Snacks net sales grew 16.4 percent driven by continued strong sales for Nature Valley grain snacks, Fiber One bars, and fruit snacks. Baking Products net sales rose 15.8 percent due to significant volume growth. Yoplait recorded net sales growth of 13.5 percent, reflecting net price realization, continued strong performance from Yoplait Light yogurt, and introductory shipments of new products, including Yo-Plus and Fiber One yogurt. Pillsbury net sales increased 8.0 percent, driven by refrigerated dough products and Totino’s pizza rolls. The Meals division recorded a 7.5 percent net sales increase, led by Progresso ready-to-serve soups and Green Giant frozen vegetables. Net sales for Big G cereals grew 3.1 percent, driven mainly by pricing and package size changes on established cereal brands led by Cheerios varieties and the Fiber One brand.

Operating profits for the third quarter of fiscal 2008 increased 8.8 percent to $486.2 million from $447.0 million in the same period a year ago.
