Closure looms for Kellogg’s factory, putting 360 jobs at risk

KELLANOVA, the parent company of Kellogg’s, is looking to shut down a factory in Manchester under plans that will put hundreds of jobs at risk. 

Plans have been put forward to close the Trafford Park plant by the end of 2026. 

Kellanova says that the 86-year-old factory is too old to modernise.

It is Europe’s largest cereal factory and makes about one million boxes of cereal each day.

Labour MP for Stretford and Urmston Andrew Western said that the closure would be a “devastating loss.”

He said the Trafford Park has been “an iconic part of our community for decades.”

More than 360 jobs will be lost if the plans go ahead.

Usdaw organiser Mick Murray said: “Usdaw will now enter into meaningful consultation talks with the company where we will interrogate their business case and seek the best possible outcome for staff impacted by the proposed closure.

“We are providing our members with the support, advice and representation at this difficult time.”
