Our Culinary Culture

Cooking up the next generation of foods

Wellbeing is no longer simply about the absence of sickness or disease but about complete physical and emotional wellbeing, and the societal impact it can create. At Kellanova, we put the food experience at the center of our wellbeing approach and believe in the power of food to help create a place at the table for everyone.

We understand that people are seeking more nutritious, affordable and sustainable food options, but are less likely to compromise on taste, enjoyment and cultural relevance. We know the power of tasty, relevant, convenient and accessible foods to create positive shifts in modern diets.

  • Foods that delight

We are dedicated to developing food experiences that enrich and delight. In today’s culinary world, people have a wide range of tastes and enjoy culturally relevant food experiences. At Kellanova, our teams aim to continually deliver new experiences that delight.

More and more families are beginning to discover how grains and other plant foods provide a versatile array of tastes, convenience and enjoyment. We are committed to investing in enhancing people’s food experience through culinary creativity, sensory science and innovation expertise while exploring new tastes and flavors through innovation and partnerships.

Our facilities include a research and development kitchen, a consumer kitchen, sensory labs, and a packaging and design studio. These facilities are spurring culinary innovations to help Kellanova launch the next generation of food, allowing us to immerse in culinary approaches from different cultures and bring a food-centric perspective to home kitchens around the world.

  • Foods to share

Food is an experience to be shared and enjoyed. We believe in the power of food to bring people together and contribute to overall emotional wellbeing. Whether that’s the wellbeing brought about by families eating plant-based foods together, the enjoyment of snacking, or being inspired by delicious ingredients, we’re dedicated to creating memorable occasions.

Bringing people and families together around a shared meal or snack has shown to have a positive impact on overall wellbeing. The American College of Pediatrics reports that “When families regularly share meals together, everyone benefits ─ the children, parents and even the community.”

These behaviors shape the way Kellanova views wellbeing and informs our approach to eating occasions across the world. Likewise, demographic realities and the ongoing evolution of food shape our strategies and thinking. We aim to continue to evolve our offerings to anticipate and exceed people’s expectations.

  • Foods to drive diversity, equity and inclusion

Our Chef in Residency Fellowship is bringing more Black chefs into food research and development, as part of our comprehensive commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion. The yearlong program helps leading Black chefs understand how companies develop new foods and introduces Kellanova to new tastes, ingredients and flavors enjoyed by Black consumers across the globe. Our Chefs in Residence are proving that the culinary arts are a great way to make cultural connections.

The nature of the food industry is constantly changing, and the eating experience is more important than ever. We can’t wait to show you what we’re cooking up next.
