What Bert Has To Say About Battle Creek Metro Area


In the 1890’s, two brothers named Kellogg figured out a way to turn corn and wheat into flakes for breakfast cereal, and the rest is history. Battle Creek is known worldwide as the capital of the breakfast cereal industry, and is headquarters for the Kellogg Corporation as well as the Post division of Kraft and the cereal division of Ralston Purina. Not surprisingly, breakfast food and related manufacturing industries are the center of Battle Creek’s economy today.
