“We’re committed to providing the tasty and nutritious food options our consumers want,” said Sam Minardi, marketing director for Kellogg’s Morning Foods. “So, we looked to consumer requests and preferences for our newest addition to the Kellogg’s Raisin Bran lineup, and both led us to Kellogg’s Raisin Bran with Bananas.”
