Heartfelt Secret Message From Cereal Employee Written Inside The Box
When long running Canadian Kelloggs factory closed down, it’s employees wrote a heartfelt letter inside the last cereal box.
In 1924 the London Kelloggs plant in Canada was in full swing. Two days before Christmas in 2014 the plant closed. The 500 strong staff, were no longer.
This morning we woke up to the news that Stephen Gaudette, 47, opened a box of Frosted Flakes. The box was the last ever produced by the factory. Mr Gaudette noticed some writing on the top of the bag.
When he pulled the bag out he discovered a hand written note from the final assembly line workers that read:
“This is the very last bag of Canadian cereal for the Canadian market from Kellogg’s London, Ontario plant.”
The message was signed by three workers, who had written how many years they had worked at the plant for. A total of 81 years between them.
Mr Gaugette and his family were moved by the note.
“I thought about it more as a family man while having breakfast with my two kids — I have a job to go to. I’m lucky," he said.
Whats even sadder is the Mr Gaudette said the bag was stained with tears.
