BATTLE CREEK, MICH. — A year after announcing it would close its ready-to-eat cereal plant in London, Ont., The Kellogg Co. on Dec. 10 made its last products at the facility. The plant, which has been in London since 1924, has seen operations slowly wind down over the past year. The company in September eliminated 300 positions, leaving about 165 to stay on the job until the plant closes for good on Dec. 23.

Production at the London plant is expected to be transitioned to plants in Michigan and Pennsylvania.

The plant in London began as the Canada Corn Co., a manufacturing facility with the rights to produce Toasted Corn Flakes for Canadian distribution. In 1924, W.K. Kellogg bought the plant and took over production to supply all of Canada with Kellogg cereal. The facility was overhauled in 1984 in a $223 million renovation that allowed the plant to churn out 750,000 cereal boxes per day.
