Meet Ellen, Product Development Scientist

Ellen works to develop new products. “I am fortunate to be in a role that allows me to work with many talented people,” said Ellen. “Research and development is such an exciting place to be.”

One of the best parts of product development and research, according to Ellen, is hearing direct feedback from consumers about something you helped make. “It’s so rewarding to hear people say, ‘my kids love your cereal’.”

Meet Kellie, Packaging Engineer

As a packaging engineer for Post Consumer Brands and a key member of the cereal packaging process, Kellie focuses primarily on testing, validating and implementing new packaging materials and designs for both new and existing brands. Her team also works to evaluate and improve packaging sustainability.

“We own packaging specifications, so anytime we modify a design or packaging we work together,” said Kellie. By working together, the team also wins together, but it goes beyond accomplishing a goal or solving a problem. “It also means supporting each other by offering advice or sharing knowledge.”
