Kellogg's Trafford Park factory closure confirmed with 360 jobs axed

The Kellogg's factory in Trafford Park will close by the end of 2026, it has been confirmed today.

Chris Silcock, the managing director of Kellanova, formerly Kellogg Company, confirmed the news in a statement this afternoon. Around 360 jobs will be lost due to the closure.

The company said talks had taken place with trade unions and company representatives and a 'mutual agreement' has been reached on a redundancy package. Redeployment will also be offered to 'all colleagues who want it, and, where it can be accommodated'.

Mr Silcock said: "We want to acknowledge the professionalism of all colleagues at the factory during what we know have been some difficult discussions. When we announced our proposal earlier this year, we said it had nothing to do with the outstanding people who work at our factory.

"And, how everyone has chosen to conduct themselves over the last months has really brought this to life for us. However, we remain clear there isn’t a long-term future for the site. It’s laid out in a way that made sense in the 1930s, with food travelling up and down six floors in a legacy manufacturing process.

"What’s more, we only use half the space in the buildings and the investment required to maintain the factory in the coming years is simply not viable.”

He added: "We understand confirmation of something significant like a factory closure is never easy to hear and we will try to make it as smooth as possible. That means we’ll work with partners on things like outplacement support for our employees and, for the community, we will start to explore the long-term future of the site."
