Live Our Founder's Values

It all started in 1906, when W.K. Kellogg founded our company to provide a healthier breakfast option. Mr. Kellogg set out to change the way people ate breakfast … and he ended up changing the world. He wasn’t only a brilliant business person, he was also one of the world’s early conservationists and a leading philanthropist. Mr. Kellogg instilled in our company the K Values™ that continue to inspire us today.

  • We act with integrity and show respect.

  • We are all accountable.

  • We are passionate about our business, our brands and our foods.

  • We have the humility and hunger to learn.

  • We strive for simplicity.

  • We love success.

Our dedication to living our founder’s values contribute to our five priority U.N. SDGs: 2 – Zero Hunger; 5 – Gender Equality; 12 – Responsible Consumption and Production; 13 – Climate Action; and 17 – Partnerships for the Goals. Our work also support a number of additional SDGs that are important to our business, outlined in Materiality Across our Value Chain.

My Kellogg colleagues have found creative ways to keep connected while working remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic, and have a little fun in the process. This includes a live cooking broadcast from my Chicago apartment.
