Name That Com­pany

The Record (Troy, NY) - - BUSINESS -

I trace my roots back to 1898, when my founder failed to make gra­nola and flaked wheat berries in­stead. He later flaked corn, and a break­fast sta­ple was born. I in­tro­duced my Bran Flakes in 1915. I was one of the first com­pa­nies to in­clude nu­tri­tional in­for­ma­tion on pack­ag­ing. I in­creased my hir­ing dur­ing the Great De­pres­sion and made K ra­tions for sol­diers in World War II. I’m based in Bat­tle Creek, Michi­gan. To­day my brands in­clude Pringles, Cheez-It, Kee­bler, Spe­cial K, Pop-Tarts, Eggo, Fa­mous Amos, Morn­ingstar Farms, Nu­tri-Grain, Kashi and RXBAR. I rake in about $13 bil­lion an­nu­ally. Who am I?

Think you know the an­swer? We’ll an­nounce it in next week’s edi­tion.
