Kraft Heinz says it is cutting about 2,500 jobs as part of its plan to slash costs after the food companies combined.
Spokesman Michael Mullen says affected workers are in the U.S. and Canada and were to be notified in person. About 700 of the cuts were coming in Northfield, Illinois, where Kraft had been headquartered.
The company would not specify where other cuts were taking place but said that all the jobs were salaried. It said none of the job cuts involved factory workers.
