BATTLE CREEK, MICH. — The Kellogg Co. has completed its acquisition of Pringles from Procter & Gamble for $2.695 billion.

“In Pringles, Kellogg has acquired a terrific business with exceptional employees, world-class manufacturing facilities, iconic brand awareness and a tremendous platform for growth,” said John Bryant, president and chief executive officer for Kellogg. “The addition of Pringles to our portfolio significantly advances the company’s strategic goal of building a global snacks business on par with our global cereal business and expanding our global footprint.”

Pringles nearly triples the size of Kellogg’s international snacks business.
