At Cereal Partners Worldwide, our purpose is clear. We Make Breakfast Better.
Cereal Partners Worldwide was founded by Nestlé and General Mills in 1990. Since then, that’s been our promise to our consumers, our suppliers, our employees, and the communities where we work and live.
We make over a wide range of breakfast cereals – giving everybody an option for a delicious, convenient, and nutritious breakfast.
We want to build a truly sustainable business. This means innovating and improving everything we do - from how we source ingredients, to how we make our products, to the way we work.
Breakfast is an important meal that’s part of a healthy and balanced diet. Whether it’s a quick bite as you run out the door, or a quiet moment before your day starts… breakfast is important.
Our pursuit of a better breakfast will never end. We need to challenge ourselves to continually improve our current products and expand our portfolio to offer a range of breakfast cereals that meet our consumers’ needs.
For nearly two decades, our teams have been working on improving our recipes increasing the amount of whole grain, lowering the sugar and salt, and removing artificial colours and flavours.
