KELLOGG’S GOES ORGANIC AND VEGAN WITH NEW PLANT-BASED ‘NO ADDED SUGAR’ CEREALS
Kellogg’s will enter the organic and vegan foods market with a new range of, plant-based cereals under the W.K.Kellogg brand.
The five-strong range – including two ‘No Added Sugar’ granolas - will be completely unique to the cereal market offering differentiated natural flavours at an accessible price point*.
The brand, named after Kellogg’s founder William K Kellogg, was born through a focus on wholesome food trends and is set to drive ingredient-conscious consumers to the mainstream cereal market.
The five SKUs include: No Added Sugar Granolas (Apricot & Pumpkin Seeds / Coconut Cashew and Almond), Organic Wholegrain Wheats (Original / Raisin) and a Super Grains Granola (Cranberry, Sultana and Spelt), delivering high taste credentials through wholesome grains and natural flavours.
Emma Birks, W.K.Kellogg brand manager for the UK and Ireland, said: “We’re committed to creating foods which suit changing consumer diets and with people increasingly seeking more plant-based foods, the W.K.Kellogg range is crucial to our portfolio.
“The brand will satisfy consumers searching the aisles for organic, vegan-friendly foods with natural flavourings and the ‘No Added Sugar’ label.
“Timing of this launch is key; January is a fundamental opportunity to catch consumers adopting new, more wholesome diets and we’re well positioned with W.K.Kellogg to help retailers do so.”
Supported with £8m media spend across 2018, W.K.Kellogg cereals will be shipping from December this year for a January launch, ranging from £2.99 RRP (Organic Wholegrain Wheats) to £3.79 RRP (Granolas).
*All products in the W.K. Kellogg range are suitable for vegans.
The No Added Sugar label refers two granolas in the range: Apricot & Pumpkin Seeds / Coconut Cashew and Almond
There are naturally occurring sugars in all products in the W.K.Kellogg range.
Organic products in the W.K.Kellogg range are the Organic Wholegrain Wheats (original and raisin).
