Kellogg Company is eliminating more jobs as part of its restructuring strategy.
Battle Creek-based Kellogg Company confirmed today it is cutting 79 positions, including 67 at its base operation, effective Feb. 25.
Amid its re-organization of Kellogg North America, or KNA, the company saw the opportunity to restructure its Global Growth Team, moving many of the workers into KNA-specific roles, according to Kris Bahner, SVP of global corporate affairs, Kellogg Company.
The company is eliminating some roles and creating others to ensure “the right balance of resources” in the Global Growth Team.
“Our leaner and more agile GGT organization will be focused on prioritized initiatives that deliver accelerated growth,” Bahner said.
The re-organization of Kellogg North America is one of the final initiatives under the company’s Project K cost-saving and restructuring program, a four-year plan announced in late 2013 that kicked off in 2014.
The latest local layoffs are in addition to the 30 announced in November that went into effect Jan. 1.
