TORONTO, May 2004 — Busy Canadians can now have cereal on the go with the
launch of Kellogg Canada’s new Cereal in a Cup, an innovative portable cereal
packaging that accommodates milk without any spills. Kellogg’s is the first cereal
manufacturer to introduce a “grab-and-go” format to Canadian foodservice and
“Cereal in a Cup is an exciting innovation that illustrates Kellogg’s commitment to both our consumers and the foodservice industry,” says Carol Stewart, Vice President of Sales, Kellogg Canada Inc. “This convenient new breakfast and snacking option provides simple, healthy choices for Canadians of all ages who are becoming increasingly time-pressured and eating more meals away from home.”
Before this innovation, cereal was only available in small individual size boxes. The new cup format provides a flexible alternative that addresses many previously unmet needs in foodservice, such as high impact merchandising at point of purchase and true portability.
The sturdy plastic cup features a wide mouth that comfortably accommodates a spoon.
To eat cereal with milk: simply remove the foil lid, add milk and enjoy your favourite Kellogg’s cereal brands. Cereal-in-a-Cup also makes snacking without milk easy with this “grab-and-go” friendly format.
“Cereal-in-Cup was developed specifically to meet the needs of foodservice operators
and not merely adapted from the retail market,” added Ms. Stewart.
Current flavours available in the Cereal in a Cup packaging include: Kellogg’s Corn
Flakes*, Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes*, Froot Loops*, Special K* and Rice Krispies*
cereals, Kellogg’s top-ranking brands in the adult, all-family and children ready-to-eat cereal categories. The Cereal in a Cup products will be available across Canada in foodservice outlets, at gas stations and convenience stores.
The product launch will be supported by strong consumer and trade support, including
national print advertising and high-impact merchandising units.
