Food Safety

Providing safe, high-quality foods 

When it comes to food, nothing is more important to Kellogg than quality and safety. Our Kellogg Food Safety System directs our global, comprehensive approach to uniform food safety standards. In addition, the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) certifies all manufacturing facilities, as well as ingredient suppliers, and we continue to invest to continuously improve our food safety systems and processes.

Our commitment also includes a companywide food quality and safety training initiative that is mandatory for every employee and all new hires, while employees in our manufacturing facilities also undergo food quality and safety training annually. We know that people expect our foods to deliver consistent high-quality experiences and these processes ensure that our high food safety standards are met. Our comprehensive, global food quality and safety standards are clearly articulated in our Kellogg Quality Management System and manufacturing standards for external partners.

We began unannounced audits of our Kellogg-owned facilities in 2016 and contract manufacturers globally in 2019 and made this our standard practice in 2019. We also conduct regular audits of ingredient suppliers.
