Kellogg Company (often referred to as simply Kellogg or Kellogg's, or even more formally Kellogg's of Battle Creek) is an American multinational producer of breakfast foods, snack foods, cookies, and crackers, with the corporate world headquarters in Battle Creek, Michigan, USA. Kellogg trades under the ticker symbol nyse|K. Revenues in 2006 were $10.906 billion.


Kellogg's was founded as the Battle Creek Toasted Corn Flake Company on February 19, 1906, by Will Keith Kellogg as an outgrowth of his work with his brother John Harvey Kellogg at the Battle Creek Sanitarium following practices based on the Seventh-day Adventist Christian denomination. The company produced and marketed the hugely successful Kellogg's Toasted Corn Flakes and was renamed the Kellogg Company in 1922.

In 1930, the Kellogg Company announced that most of its factories would shift towards 30 hour work weeks, from the usual 40. This practice remained until World War II, and continued briefly after the war, although some departments and factories remained locked into 30 hour work weeks until 1980. [cite web| url= | title="The Gospel of Consumption" |accessdate=2008-05-06]

The company owns the Kellogg's, Keebler (acquired in 2001), Morningstar Farms, and Kashi divisions or subsidiaries. It also owns the Natural Touch, Cheez-It, Murray, Austin, Famous Amos, Carr's, Gardenburger (acquired 2007) and Plantation brands.

Corporate governance

Current members of the board of directors of Kellogg Company are: Jordan T Shington, Zachary Goldstein, Gordon Lunt, Bella Bo' Gellerman, Dorothy Johnson, Daniel Jorndt, Ann McLaughlin Korologos, David MacKay, William Perez, William C. Richardson, John Zabriskle, and Casey Gallagher.

On January 24, 2005, the former CEO (since April 1999) and chairman of the board of directors (since April 2000), Carlos Gutierrez became U.S. Secretary of Commerce in the second term of President George W. Bush. Kellogg's board of directors named James M. Jenness as chairman and CEO to replace Gutierrez.

On October 23, 2006, Kellogg's announced that president and chief operating officer David MacKay would become the chief executive officer, effective December 31, 2006. Jenness will continue to serve as chairman of the Board of Directors. [cite web| url= | title="Kellogg's Press Release" |accessdate=2006-10-27]

Kellogg's made its first foray into auto racing in 1991-92, when the company sponsored the #41 Chevrolets fielded by Larry Hedrick Motorsports in the NASCAR Winston Cup Series and driven by Phil Parsons, Dave Marcis, Greg Sacks and Hut Stricklin. But they gained greater prominence for their sponsorship of two time NASCAR Winston Cup Champion Terry Labonte from 1993 (at Billy Hagan Racing) until his retirement in 2006, and Hendrick Motorsports from 1994 until the end of 2006, initially with Labonte with both their Corn Flakes and Frosted Flakes brands, including Labonte's second NASCAR Championship (1996), and his second win in a major (the 2003 Southern 500). After Labonte's retirement, the sponsor stayed when Hendrick with new driver Kyle Busch. The company has consistently reduced its sponsorship, where in 2007 it shares only the hood or the sides of the cars with co-primary sponsor Carquest Auto Parts now driven by Casey Mears.

Environmental Record

According to a Lake City, Minnesota, source, The Kellogg Company in Minnesota alone releases over 49,000 pounds of pollution a year. [ [] ] The company is not only releasing chemicals into the air, but into the water as well, which causes many different problems. With different bodies of water being polluted, it kills off food sources, as well as hurting other companies.


Kelloggs has used some merchandising for their products. Kelloggs once released a PC Game that came free with special packs of cereal. It played in a similar fashion as Donkey Kong Country; you could play as Tony the Tiger, Coco the Monkey, or Snap, Crackle, and Pop. Kelloggs has also released "Talking" games. The two current versions are Talking Tony and Talking Sam. In these games, a user uses a microphone to play games and create voice commands for their computer. In Talking Tony, Tony the Tiger, one of Kellogg's most famous mascots, would be the main and only character in the game. In Talking Sam, Toucan Sam, another famous mascot, would be in the game instead. Some toy cars have the Kelloggs logo on them, and occasionally, even Tony the Tiger would appear on these speedy,fast,super,race cars.
