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.
