Kellogg has announced job cuts at it Manchester HQ
Around 80 jobs are at risk at Kellogg's Manchester head office as the firm continues to make cuts in order to streamline operations.
The firm announced its Project K strategy at the end of 2013 designed to drive efficiencies and global growth. Earlier this year the firm announced 100 job cuts at its production plant in Wrexham.
Today (4 June) Kellogg confirmed plans for a Global Business Services Centre in Romania which would streamline many of its business support processes in Finance, IT, Supply Chain and HR.
"To deliver on our strategy and grow our business around the world, we need new ways of operating in an increasingly complex, global business environment," said Kellogg president and CEO John Bryant. "GBS is a proven approach that will enable us to operate more efficiently and effectively."
In an email to just-food, a spokesperson confirmed Kellogg's is "consulting with 80 employees within our European business regarding these proposals,".
The consultation process began on 20 May and is likely to end mid-July the cereal-maker added.
