This company was founded more than 100 years ago and today rules the American breakfast table. People are not going to stop having breakfast, even during recessions.

This food manufacturer has managed to grow its dividend by more than 6,400% over the last half century. It is expected to provide an earnings growth of more than 7.32% in 2017, which is a strong positive for the company to keep increasing its dividend.

  • Recession proof business.
  • Strong history of paying dividends – and growing them.
  • The company has given more than 10 consecutive years of annual dividend growth.
