Less Packaging, Less Money: Bag the Box with Malt-O-Meal


There are a lot of reasons why shoppers reach for a bag of Malt-O-Meal brand cereal.
Perhaps the most obvious is that ounce for ounce, Malt-O-Meal brand cereal costs less than its competitors.*  Of course there’s also Malt-O-Meal’s guaranteed great taste that places ten of its cereals among the top 50 selling cereals in the U.S.**

But that’s not all.  Malt-O-Meal’s resealable bag results in 75% less consumer waste.***  Packaging cereal in bags leaves less to throw away than boxed cereal brands that package their products in bags inside boxes.
