Kellogg Canada Inc.
London Plant

P.O. Box 5517
100 Kellogg Lane
London, ON N6A 4P9

History
The Kellogg Canada manufacturing plant in London, Ontario began as the Canada Corn Company, a manufacturing facility with the rights to produce Toasted Corn Flakes for Canadian distribution.

In 1924, W.K. Kellogg, the founder of Kellogg Company, bought the plant and took over production to supply all of Canada with Kellogg cereal.

Production
Thanks to a $223 million expansion that started in 1984, Kellogg Canada's 106,000 m² London plant is one of the most technologically advanced cereal manufacturing facilities within the Kellogg Company.

The highly efficient London facility uses computer-automated machines that perform all steps of production, from mixing the grains to packing the boxes in cartons. A monorail system carries in-process food throughout the plant and equipment is washed by high-powered jet sprays, called CIP (clean in place) technology.

The plant produces more than 30 brands of breakfast cereal for all of Canada and exports approximately 30 percent of the plant's production to its parent company in the United States. Approximately 750,000 cartons of cereal are produced each day at the plant.

Community Involvement
Kellogg is involved in the London community through a variety of projects and associations dedicated to the healthy growth and development of children and families. Kellogg's* executives are members of the London Chamber of Commerce and sit on the board of directors of the Environmental Management Centre for Business. Kellogg generously donates product to local branches of the Canadian Association of Food Banks and community groups, and the company sponsors several local children's sports teams.

Boasting a strong commitment to the environment, Kellogg Canada oversees a team of internal and external staff who audit packaging and production processes to minimize solid waste disposal, wastewater discharge, hazardous waste and air emissions.

All recyclable materials are collected and returned to suppliers for reuse, and cereal waste becomes a component of animal feed. The plant's commitment to protecting the environment has gained it recognition in the greater community.
