Good morning U- tours of our plant in Battle Creek, Michigan began in 1906 and were offered to the public for many years. Unfortunately, for both safety and security reasons, we ended our plant tours in 1986. I apologize, nevertheless please enjoy your upcoming visit to Battle Creek, we welcome you!

Sorry to hear that-I am sure it was a great learning and educational experience. We still would like to visit in the area of Battle Creek in May.

I took the tour with my parents in 1962. We saw the entire corn flake process from rail car loads of corn to packaging. We even got to taste the wet flakes before they were dried. I was looking forward to going again and see what the process changes have been in 50 years. Sorry to learn that's not possible. We toured the Ford plant in Detroit on the same trip. It was very memorable.

Hi Bill – thanks for sharing how much you enjoyed the plant tour. It was not an easy decision to stop offering the tours but the issues related to safety and security did not leave us much choice.

Regarding our cooking processes, I would invite you to check out the videos we have available at: http://www.kelloggs.com/en_US/simpleg... .

In years past I had the opportunity to take Kids from a tour company out of New York city on plant tours Now that I have a son of my own ( 10 yrs old ) I thought that going to Kellogg's Plant would be a great learning experience for him I was wondering if there is something similar in the Area

As a kid growing up, I wrote a letter to Kellogg and they sent me a letter inviting me to tour their Battle Creek factory. I always wanted to go. Now almost 50 years later, I finally get the chance to travel to Battle Creek only to hear that there are no more tours. I feel that little 7 year kid inside of me shed a tear.

Too bad Kellogg's doesn't give factory tours anymore. Seems like TV shows are about the only option for seeing industrial processes in action.
