General Mills will undertake a national advertising campaign in 5 major Hispanic magazines to support its Yoplait (yoghurt) and La Lechera (flakes) brands. The campaign will take place during August and September, Rudy Rodriguez, Director of Multicultural Marketing at General Mills, tells Portada®. Together with Procter & Gamble, General Mills is one of the largest Hispanic print advertisers (particularly Free Standing Inserts).
