Things change, cereals are no longer profitable to be processed at a certain country and factories have to close, that's how life works


A Canadian man got a shock when he opened a box of cereal only to discover a hand-written message from three plant workers explaining that it was last box of cereal produced at the now-shuttered factory.

Stephane Gaudette said he first noticed a handwritten message in black marker, "Please read the bag" across the top of his Frosted Flakes, reports the CBC.

On the bag inside the box, a note explained that the cereal was the final one off the line at the factory in London, Ontario when it closed on December 5, 2014.

“This is the very last bag of Canadian cereal for the Canadian market from Kellog’s,” the note on the bag read.

Look at how many years the men worked there... 24, 29, and 28 years. It's beyond sad that after so many years, they lost their jobs. I hope that Kellogg's allowed the men to retire with full benefits.

I don't think I'd be able to eat that bag of cereal...

I agree that it is sad that the factory shut down. I hope they are retired and doing well. Actually, I hope "they're great!"

That's really sad. They've all been on the job for so long and then it's all gone.

Shame. Some of the jobs will go to Belleville, Ontario according to Kellogg's, and the rest will go to China, to their Yihai Kerry joint venture. They're said to be expanding a major new facility in Rayong, Thailand for cereal and snack food production, which will certainly be closing additional Canadian plants then.

Welcome to the global free market.

I don't understand this mentality that everyone should have a job forever. I have been laid off before. Companies are in business to make money, they are not charities. You know how not to get laid off? Start your own business so you can lay people off. Make yourself indispensable. Make yourself so vital to the company, they can't fire you even if they wanted to.

My company recently had a massive lay off.. about 95% of the work force not counting admin.

The fired some of the best, most knowledgeable hard working guys I have ever known.

Sad thing is, the company was very profitable in the years leading up to the layoffs, and the only reason we were no longer profitable was due to federal red tape and other bureaucratic non sense. It had nothing to do with the company, had nothing to do with the great guys either.

You make it sound so easy and simple, but really layoffs like these to save money all lead back to the feds. IRS, EPA, ACA, FTC, and their Canadian equivalents.

It's sad as hell these guys got laid off, and they aren't the only ones, it is EVERYWHERE.

I wonder how many people know their Kelloggs cereals are manufactured in other countries.

I'd hold onto that bag in the box. Someone could tell their kids one day...."See here, we used to make this cereal in our own country, we actually were employed and worked in the factory. This is why mommy and daddy had to sell your tricycle and go on welfare, our jobs got shipped over seas where quality control is at a minimum and they eat kidnapped dogs."


Dog nappers now roam all over Thailand and most dogs are stolen pets. It is not a debate about the rights and wrongs of eating dog meat.

Im not a lawyer but I doubt it as the company if it has dissolved is no longer a recognised legal entity.

Those are plant workers that have worked there for over 20 years who signed their name at the bottom... plants like this closing are the reason the minimum wage has to be a living wage now.

I'm guessing Canada will soon look like most of the US. Especially in the midwest...

Theres TONS of empty factories all around this part of the country. It is a sad, sad day when people who gave 24+ years working for a company, lose their job.

I hope they gave them a severance package or a retirement. I know Kellog's here in the states treats their employees well benefit and wage wise, I can only imagine the same would hold true up in Canada.
