Kellogg Company was founded by William Keith Kellogg in 1906 in rural Michigan, USA, with his discovery of toasted flakes. Those toasted flakes became world-famous as Kellogg’s Corn Flakes. Kellogg’s products arrived in the UK in 1922 and we opened our first factory in Old Trafford, Manchester, in 1938. Today, Kellogg in the UK employs 2,000 people across three locations: a factory in Manchester and Wrexham and a head office in Manchester.
We are one of the most trusted brands in the UK, with around 8 out of 10 households having one of our foods in their kitchen cupboard. Our brands are some of the best loved cereals in the UK including Kellogg’s Rice Krispies, Kellogg’s Special K and Kellogg’s Bran Flakes.
We believe in the power of breakfast
Kellogg may be over a century old but our knowledge of health and nutrition is cutting-edge. We believe our grain-based breakfast provides a superior start to your day, and we continue to look for ways to drive innovation and enhance the nutritional value of our products. We will contribute to a healthier world by continually developing better breakfast foods for today’s population.
Helping our Communities
Our founder, W.K. Kellogg, made a commitment to give back to the communities in which we operate. Over a century later, his legacy lives on through our global programme, Breakfasts for Better Days. Breakfasts for Better Days makes hunger relief our signature cause in the UK and across the world.
In the UK we have been supporting school breakfast clubs for the last 18 years with funding, training and food donations because we believe that every child deserves the best start to the day. Our surplus food is delivered to community projects through our partnership with food re-distribution charities.
