Singapore: Kellogg, a manufacturer of ready-to-eat breakfast cereals and producer of savory snacks, cookies and crackers, has relocated its Asia Pacific headquarters to Singapore.

The company’s regional president, as well as supply chain, human resource, research and development (R&D), marketing and finance leaders will all be based in the new office.

Singapore will also be home to Kellogg Company’s new R&D regional centre for savoury snacks, including foods marketed under the Pringles brand. The R&D centre will focus on food, flavour and packaging developments, as well as nutrition and sensory science.

The company’s Asia-Pacific headquarters and R&D centre currently employ about 50 professionals in Singapore. This number is expected to grow as the company’s savoury snacks business grows in the region.

According to Amit Banati, the company’s Asia Pacific president, the new regional headquarters in Singapore represents an important step in realising the company’s ambitions for long-term growth throughout Asia Pacific.
