Kellogg’s Factory in Wrexham welcomed Anthea McIntyre MEP to their home in North Wales. Miss McIntyre who represents the West Midlands Region and close neighbour to Wales, promised to visit following a meeting with Kellogg’s in Brussels.
Anthea was given a guided tour of the plant by Karen Thomas (Plant Director), Paul Wheeler (Director Corporate Affairs) and Katie Carson (Public Affairs Europe), together with Andrew Atkinson who is the Conservative Candidate in Wrexham for the forthcoming general election.
Anthea said “I was delighted to be invited to visit the operation in Wrexham to see how the plant performs in the very competitive market of cereal production. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and Kellogg’s are constantly adapting to the changing needs and tastes of its customers.
“They make an enormous contribution to the local economy, employing 405 people, many of whom have long standing family ties and many people have over 15 year’s service with the company.
“I was also hugely impressed by the level of apprenticeships. Apprentices follow a 6 year programme which means they can earn and learn on the job combining academic studies at college with a paid job.”
