The partnership means Kellogg’s will have Team GB marketing rights across its brands, including Kellogg’s Corn Flakes, Special K, Squares and Pringles from now until the end of 2016.

Kellogg’s also plans to announce a number of big name former and current athletes, selected as team ambassadors, to support the campaign in the coming months as they look to inspire people with the amazing stories of British Olympians, fuelled for success by Kellogg’s cereal & snacks.
Jonathan Myers, managing director of Kellogg’s UK, said: “Kellogg’s products can be found in 8 out of 10 British households - we are a staple of the British breakfast table and synonymous with getting the nation off to a great start in the morning – we are the “champion of great starts”.
