    Kellogg’s has on Thursday confirmed the closure of their iconic Manchester site, based in Trafford Park.

    The breakfast food manufacturer has in February announced that they propose to close the site.

    Kellanova, which owns Kellogg’s, made the announcement after the end of three-month formal talks with factory staff and union representatives.

    There are about 360 jobs at the factory, which could be closed by the end of 2026. The site, opened in 1938, was the first manufacturing base for Kellogg’s in Britain.

    Usdaw, which represented production workers at the plant, said it is supporting members “at this difficult time”.  

    “Usdaw has engaged in meaningful consultation talks with the company, where we interrogated their business case. Regrettably it became clear that the site is not fit for purpose and unable to accommodate modern manufacturing processes,” Mick Murray, Usdaw area organizer, said.  

    “Through the consultation talks we have secured an enhanced redundancy package for those leaving the business. We are providing our members with the support, advice and representation at this difficult time through the individual consultations, where we will be seeking redeployment and retraining opportunities.”
