Kellogg’s 2019-2020 Corporate Responsibility Report
Kellogg has a strong presence in the European region, with factories in Spain, Poland, Belgium and the UK and offices across Europe employing over 5,000 people. In Europe and around the globe, Kellogg is creating Better Days by fighting hunger, protecting our planet, supporting wellbeing and driving equity as part of our commitment to helping 3 billion people have Better Days by the end of 2030.

- Since 2015, we have supported more than 433,000 farmers with climate-smart agriculture programs that support biodiversity, including in Spain, Italy and the UK.
- We achieved 76% packaging recyclability in 2019 globally, and have joined packaging supply chain recycling partnerships in Europe, such as CEFLEX for soft plastics and 4Evergreen for paper-based packaging.
