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 Church. The 
company produced and marketed the hugely successful Kellogg's Toasted 
Corn Flakes and was renamed the Kellogg Company in 1922.

In 1930, the Kellogg Company announced that most of its factories would 
shift towards 30-hour work weeks, from the usual 40. W.K. Kellogg stated 
that he did this so that an additional shift of workers would be 
employed in an effort to support people through the depression era. This 
practice remained until World War II, and continued briefly after the 
war, although some departments and factories remained locked into 
30-hour work weeks until 1980.
