Protest Anticipated for Annual Kellogg Shareholder’s Meeting Friday
You might see a plane flying a protest banner over Battle Creek on Friday. A group is planning to protest Kellogg Company's cutting back of vitamins added to cereals they sell in Mexico. The company says they "re-balanced" the Mexican products.
An article in News-Medical gives the Kellogg response to critics and has reaction from so-called experts.
Kellogg's will have their annual shareholder meeting Friday afternoon (April 26th). Have you ever wondered what goes on in one of those meetings? Well, unless you own stock, and your name is on the account, you'll still be wondering. Otherwise, you're welcome to be part of the meeting.
One of the products under scrutiny is Kellogg's Mexican version of Frosted Flakes, as pictured here on Amazon dot com.
