2016 Nutrition Summit & ICD

2016 Nutrition Summit and ICD

We recently held our first ever Kellogg’s European and Middle East Nutrition Summit, where our Vice President Peter Soer was proud to announce our new Global Food Beliefs.

The Kellogg Company was established over 100 years ago in 1906 as ‘a company of dedicated people making cereal for a healthy world’. Nutrition remains at the heart of everything we make, but in 2015, Kellogg’s took steps to modernise policies to reflect the changing world in which we live and work. These have become the Kellogg's Global Breakfast Food Beliefs.

Here we present a series of presentations from the Kellogg's Nutrition Summit, and the recent International Congress of Dietetics 2016, which highlight our Global Food Beliefs and work that Kellogg’s is undertaking to achieve these.

Kellogg’s Global Food Beliefs: a journey to healthier diets and a better world

Speaker: Peter Soer, Kellogg Vice President, European Marketing and Innovation

Families all over the world rely on Kellogg’s to start their day. They put their trust in us to deliver great-tasting and wholesome foods they are proud to eat, serve and share.

We have a responsibility to bring our best to consumers each day. This is a responsibility we take very seriously.

After all, we know how important delicious food is in bringing people together, to share a moment and create a lasting memory. To continue to earn our place at breakfast tables now and in the future, we have a set of core beliefs that guide us. They are the Kellogg’s Global Breakfast Food Beliefs. Find out More here:
