Our founder, W.K. Kellogg, said: “Whatever success I have had in business has been a result of my good fortune in selecting employees who could do their jobs better than I could have done it myself.” More than a century later, we know that employees remain our most important resource. Our success today and tomorrow depends on them.
Consumers around the world enjoy Kellogg Company products, one of which – Kellogg’s Corn Flakes® – has been part of a wholesome, delicious morning for more than a century.
