Ensuring Food Quality and Safety

There is nothing more important to Kellogg than the quality and safety of our foods and the safety of our people. Both are foundational to our K Values and a commitment every employee makes every day. (See Living our Founder’s Values for people safety information.)

To reinforce the importance of food safety at Kellogg, in 2018 we launched a company-wide food quality and safety training initiative that is mandatory for every employee and all new hires. Of course, employees working in our manufacturing facilities also undergo regular food quality and safety training.

To ensure that our high expectations are met, we have comprehensive, global uniform food quality and safety standards that are clearly articulated in our Kellogg Food Safety System. All company-owned and contract-manufacturing facilities, as well as ingredient suppliers, are certified by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI). Our facilities in North America are also Safe Quality Food Institute (SQF) certified. We began unannounced audits of our Kellogg-owned facilities and contract manufacturers globally in 2018 and will make this our standard practice across our entire manufacturing supply chain, including ingredient suppliers, in 2019.

We also invested nearly USD$48 million in new equipment and facility improvements in 2018 that supported additional advancements in our food safety systems and processes.
