Q: Why has Kellogg's chosen to have their first Gluten Free Cereal (Special K) made in South Korea rather than Australia?
- Annette, Sydney, New South Wales
A: Hi Annette, that’s a great question. Our Australian factory produces many products containing gluten and because we take a claim like Gluten Free very seriously, we knew we were unable to produce a wholly gluten free product here. As our factory in Korea already met gluten free requirements, we opted to have the cereals made there instead.
We knew there was a strong demand for these products in Australia and we wanted to get them on cereal shelves for you as soon as possible. No matter where our food comes from, we ensure that it all meets Kellogg Quality standards and Australian and New Zealand Food Standards and Regulatory Requirements.
