The Manchester-based factory transforms a whopping 200 tonnes of corn every day.
It’s a 25 per cent rise in production since 2016 when Kellogg’s were producing 750,000 boxes of cereal.
Around half is used to create Cornflakes – Britain’s best loved cereal, while the remaining half is divided between Crunchy Nut and Frosties.
Crunchy Nut is the brand’s second most-loved cereal with 25 million kilos sold every year compared with 10 million kilos of Frosties.
Coco Pops remains their most popular cereal with children with 21 million kilos sold per year.
The findings, which are revealed in Channel 4’s Inside the Superbrands at 8pm on Sunday night, come as Kellogg’s open up about removing sugar from its brands.
Since 2011, it has removed 11,000 tonnes of sugar from its cereals.
The bid to tackle childhood obesity included stopping the production of Ricicles, only advertising Crunchy Nut to adults and creating a healthier range, WK Kellogg.
It also stopped featuring Tony the Tiger in advertising and changed the recipe for Coco Pops to help reduce sugar by up to 50 per cent.
And just last week, it adapted the iconic Special K recipe to reduce salt across the cereal range by an average of 20 per cent.
Paul Wheeler, director of communications at Kellogg’s, said: “We recognise the need to evolve.
“In the 50s and 60s – sugar wasn’t as much of a concern for people, because it was the end of post-war austerity and you probably weren’t feeding your kids a lot of calories.
“Attitudes have changed now and about three years ago we made a decision to change, we got rid of high-sugar Ricicles and introduced 50 per cent reduction in sugar on Coco Pops.
“We do make some indulgent options if you want that – it all depends on what you want.
“We haven’t advertised Tony the Tiger for nearly two decades
