Kellogg continues with Project K, shrinks production lines
Project K will unlock cost savings that Kellogg will invest in its strategy and grow its business. Through Project K, Kellogg is strengthening its existing business in core markets, increasing growth in developing and emerging markets, and driving increased value-added innovation.
Supply Chain infrastructure changes announced include closure of the Snacks plant in Charlotte, North Carolina, U.S.; and elimination of two lines at our Snacks plant in Cincinnati, Ohio, U.S.
"As with any project that impacts people, these are difficult decisions. We are very mindful of the impact these changes will have - particularly to our employees. As our employees and others would expect from Kellogg, we will help those who are impacted through their transitions," said John Bryant, president and CEO.
The Charlotte plant is expected to close by the end of 2014 and the lines in Cincinnati will also be eliminated by that time. ■
