Kellogg’s makes the move to MediaCityUK
11 January 2018
Cereals giant Kellogg's has moved into its UK headquarters to MediaCityUK - in fun fashion.
The 420 staff made the move to Orange after almost 30 years in Old Trafford. Kellogg’s will take up three floors of the building, sharing it with The University of Salford, Ericsson and ITV.
It will be home to the company’s UK and Irish sales and marketing business as well as support functions for its European operations, including those involved in research, food development, marketing, sales, human resources and finance.
Kellogg’s announced its arrival in fun fashion with Tony the Tiger taking over TfGM Metrolink travel announcements with a friendly welcome message at the MediaCityUK tram stop.
The iconic mascot was also spotted meeting people off the tram at Kellogg’s new home, stopping for selfies at Cornbrook station and adding a little cheer to the otherwise busy, rush hour commute from Piccadilly.
Actor Tom Clarke Hill, the voice of Tony the Tiger, came to Manchester to record the tram announcements in Transport for Greater Manchester’s Trafford depot.
Clarke Hill said: “I’ve been the voice of Tony the Tiger for nearly 20 years. I used to watch the Kellogg’s Frosties adverts when I was a kid and mimic the voice, over time practise makes perfect.
“It has been really exciting to be involved in this latest project, it is has been really fun to be involved in the next chapter of the company – the move to MediaCity, it’s going to be grrrreat!”
