Greetings and welcome to the General Mills' First Quarter Fiscal 2021 Earnings Conference Call. [Operator Instructions]. Afterwards, we will conduct a question-and-answer session. [Operator Instructions]. As a reminder, this conference is being recorded today, Wednesday, September 23rd, 2020.

It is now my pleasure to turn the conference over to Jeff Siemon, Vice President of Investor Relations. Please go ahead sir.

Jeff Siemon

Thanks, France and good morning, everyone. Thanks for joining us today for our Q&A session on first quarter results. I hope everyone had the time to review our press release, to listen to the prepared remarks and view our presentation materials, which are available on our Investor Relations site

It's important to note that in this Q&A session, we may make forward-looking statements that are based on our current views and assumptions, including facts and assumptions related to the potential impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our results in fiscal '21. Please refer to this morning's press release for factors that could impact forward-looking statements and for reconciliations of any non-GAAP information, which may be discussed on today's call.

I'm here virtually with Jeff Harmening, our Chairman and CEO; Kofi Bruce, our CFO; and Jon Nudi, Group President of our North America Retail segment. We're holding this call from different locations, so we'll cross our fingers that technology cooperates. And with that, let's go ahead and get to the first question.

France, can you get us started, please?
