Leading Russian cracker and cereals maker bought by Kellogg

By Alex Steblinina. A leading Russian maker of crackers and breakfast cereals will soon be bought by Kellogg, the world’s leading cereal-maker.

No details of how much it was paid were given.

United Baker Group has 4,000 employers and its sales were of about 100 million dollars in 2007.

Kellogg Company (often referred to as simply Kellogg or Kellogg's) is an American multinational producer of breakfast foods, snack foods, cookies, and crackers, with corporate headquarters in Battle Creek, Michigan, USA. Its revenues in 2006 were $10.906 billion.

Kellogg's was founded as the Battle Creek Toasted Corn Flake Company on February 19, 1906, by Will Keith Kellogg as an outgrowth of his work with his brother John Harvey Kellogg at the Battle Creek Sanitarium following practices based on the Seventh Day Adventist religion. The company produced and marketed the hugely successful Kellogg's Toasted Corn Flakes and was renamed the Kellogg Company in 1922.

The company owns the Kellogg's, Keebler (acquired in 2001), Morningstar Farms, and Kashi divisions or subsidiaries. It also owns the Natural Touch, Cheez-It, Murray, Austin, Famous Amos, Carr's, and Plantation brands.
