Why cereal maker Kellogg plans to invest $420m in Nigeria


Kellogg Co topped Wall Street forecasts for first-quarter profit and sales on Thursday.

By Reuters - May 3, 20180
(Reuters) – Fruit Loops cereal maker Kellogg Co topped Wall Street forecasts for first-quarter profit and sales on Thursday, boosted by stronger sales of snacks including Pringles chips and protein bars.

Though Kellogg has lowered the sugar content in many of its popular cereals to win back health-conscious customers, much of the Battle Creek, Michigan-based food company’s business today is driven by sales of snacks such as Pringles chips and RXBARs.

Highlighting the falling demand for cereal in the United States, Kellogg on Thursday also announced a $420 million investment in Nigeria’s Tolaram Africa Foods, its distributing partner in Africa, which makes noodles in addition to cereal.



It is the latest in a handful of deals Kellogg has sealed in the past few years to diversify its business, including the acquisitions of protein bar brand RXBAR and Brazilian snacks group Parati.

The company did not disclose additional financial terms of the Tolaram investment.

“Cereal consumption remained soft, though the company made progress toward stabilizing the key health and wellness brands, including Special K,” Kellogg said in its earnings statement.

Kellogg’s sales rose 5 percent in the first three months of the year, the third consecutive quarterly increase, as shoppers also bought more Eggo waffles and veggie patties in addition to snacks.

Overall sales of $3.40 billion topped analysts’ expectations of $3.30 billion, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

Kellogg said it expects net sales to rise between 3 percent and 4 percent in 2018 on a constant currency basis. The forecast includes gains from the Tolaram investment and translates to sales of $13.31 billion to $13.44 billion.

Kellogg’s net income rose to $444 million in the first quarter of 2018 from $266 million a year earlier.

Excluding one-time items, Kellogg earned $1.23 per share, handily beating expectations of $1.08.

Kellogg’s stock rose 3 percent to $58.47 on Thursday morning.

Yes o my brother. Thank God. The way Buhari recovered from his illness between 2016/17, I know that God indeed wanted to use him to strengthen and build Nigeria.
It can only be God.

Personally, I think he was poisoned.
Looked like he had a debilitating condition and usually, at his age, one scarcely recovers.

With a poison however it could be easier.

Away from all that, it saddens me how Nigerians can vilify him when the obvious devils are giving a bye.

Example - Budget for 2018 still not passed despite being in the hands of the National Assembly since November 2017.

It amazes me how the likes of FFK who has never held a job before outside of government, who hasn't worked since 2015 can still afford a life of splendour yet having supporters.

It amazes me how in 2014 PDP was trying to prevent INEC from using the PVC to conduct elections yet they have supporters.

How Fayose and Jonathan prevented members of the opposition from monitoring elections in Ekiti. They were turned back at the limits of the state.

It amazes me how despite the voice recordings, the confession of accomplices in Ekitigate, the money trail, Fayose can still have supporters.

How can people wish for their country to be like the advanced nation yet support Patience Jonathan having 15 million dollars in a single account?

Naija people deserve suffer.

No bro, I dont think Nigerians deserve to suffer. Yes, the minority looters cum wailers deserve to suffer. Many Nigerians are victims of the circumstances . Sometimes , they ignorantly follow the minority loud wailers in wailing, but they are just victims.

Despite all the social media noise, you know very well that majority of Nigerians are solidly behind Buhari. They know the people like FFK, and GEJ who almost bankrupted the nation and they know that they can never be on the same page with them...

Bro, Nigeria is marching forward. Who no know, go know. Forward ever, backward never..
Let the wailers wail, their existence depends on it. If they dont wail, they will die.

Thank God they are in the minority and the census, sorry the election of February 2019 will confirm how insignificant the wailers/3rd force/PDP.g/Looters and their supporters are..

They should watch their money swim and drown in the Ocean of Nigeria. Maybe if Dangote doesn't invest in the same business, they might survive...
They should better invest in Ghana rather than the shithole Nigeria.

Is it only cornflakes? All their made in Nigeria products are quack. Cocopops and risecripies taste very bitter.

To be honest, their UK made products are good though expensive.

Shittyhole nation as confirmed by our president who called the youths whom he is responsible for, as lazy?
Buhari is a monumental error of gargantuan proportions that must be corrected in 2019!
Let us get our PVCs ready.

He said that, yet, this is d 2nd or 3rd million dollar investment, coming into Nigeria, within d past month.

They claim, he drives out n discourages investors, ds just turned that statement, on its head.


Just, let's watch out for it, Nigeria, is d next big thing, out of Africa. God willing.

How to identify a man destined to fail 101: He points to his father's house with his left finger and he thinks insulting and deriding his nation is the new cool. You can hate your leader, but if you hate your country because of its 'bad leadership, you are a failure!

Kelloggs cornflakes had been said to cause reduction of libido in men (there was also a scientific paper to that). It used to be my favourite back then in school but for years I didn't note any drop in function grin till I outgrew cornflakes.

1. U both have heard of them n their products, in d country.

2. Who invests $400m+ in a country, where their products aren't welcomed.

As long as they're bringing in FDI, they're highly welcomegrin

Expanding their product line, probably, build a new factory, employ more workers, pay more tax, create more employment opportunities.

Stop all these wild speculation

poisoned?

There are many possible and plausible explanations some mental health conditions would explain his presentation e,g depression
People do recover at his age when they get good healthcare there is no rule that people must die because they are old

So people do not recover frrom debilitating condtions at his age but they recover from poisoning? See logic
