CPUK and you

CPUK Nestle Whole Grain Cereals

Cereal Partners UK

Cereal Partners UK is the business which makes and distributes all your favourite Nestlé breakfast cereals. You know the ones we mean, the ones with green bands across the top and names like Cheerios, Shredded Wheat and Shreddies.

Our business was founded in 1990 as part of Cereal Partners Worldwide, a joint venture between Nestlé S.A. and American food company General Mills.

As a vital chain in this global success story, Cereal Partners UK has already established itself as the nation's second largest cereal manufacturer, with more than a 25% share of a market which has an estimated value of more than £1.3 billion. Many of our best-loved brands have a distinguished heritage, such as Shredded Wheat, which was first introduced over a hundred years ago, and Shreddies, which was first produced in 1953.

Our aim as a business is simple: we want to provide high quality, great tasting and healthy cereals which nourish our consumers, our communities and the people involved in making them. The way we do this is by constantly searching for new ways to meet our consumers' and customers' requirements, by continuously developing our people and by showing real respect and responsibility in the way we treat our environment.

Our main activity is the transformation of raw materials into a range of high quality, great tasting and nutritious breakfast cereals. We're therefore deeply concerned with preserving the natural environment from which our materials are derived and minimising our environmental impact in order to conserve valuable resources through the close monitoring of our actions and active efforts to understand and accommodate the latest requirements of environmental best practice. To this end, we've adopted plans to deliver against set targets for improving efficiencies in areas such as energy and water use, pollution, waste materials and recycling.

...But what does it mean for you?

We may deal in millions of tonnes of whole grain wheat and other materials. We may use some of the most modern and sophisticated food manufacturing processes in the country. But this complexity only serves to reinforce our belief that the most valuable asset in our success is our people.

That's why working for Cereal Partners UK will be a real eye-opener. You'll be joining a team of 650 people based at 3 different locations around the UK. You'll find that all of them pull together towards shared goals, and that your own importance within the bigger picture will never be overlooked thanks to the comprehensive training and development programmes and support delivered by your managers and our dedicated professional trainers.
