Kellogg Company Celebrates 117th Anniversary

When W.K. Kellogg discovered toasted corn flakes cereal 117 years ago, he created a category and shaped an entire industry. Today, Kellogg Company is shaping the future of food and unleashing our potential by separating our North American cereal business, resulting in two independent companies, each better positioned to unlock their full standalone potential.

Since that very first flake, we have been a company that has continually transformed – one that has shown the ability to adapt and evolve in a changing world. However, one thing that won’t change is our commitment to our founder’s legacy – it will continue to live on for years to come as each new company will create its own culture built on the shoulders and rich heritage of Mr. Kellogg.

To celebrate the milestone, employees around the globe wished the company a happy anniversary.

Kellogg employees wish the company a Happy 117th Anniversary.
