Layoffs in sight at Pepsi. Hundreds of jobs will be eliminated at the locations of its North American snack and beverage divisions, the Wall Street Journal reported. In a document sent to staff, and quoted by the American newspaper, PepsiCo told employees that the cuts are intended to “simplify the organization so that it can operate more efficiently”.

Cuts especially in the beverage sector

The employees of the offices in New York, Chicago and Plano, Texas will pay the price. But layoffs will be heaviest in the beverages sector as the snacks sector has already implemented a voluntary retirement program, which has reduced staff. The American newspaper always reports it.
