General Mills Announces Layoffs; No Word on Hannibal Plant
HANNIBAL, Mo. -- General Mills Inc. said Tuesday it will cut about 850 jobs as part of a plan to lower costs and boost efficiency, but there is no word on whether it will affect the company's Hannibal plant.
The Minneapolis-based maker of Cheerios, Nature Valley granola bars and Hamburger Helper said the moves will make it more effective and allow it to focus on key growth strategies.
The company offered no details on whether the job cuts would be felt in Hannibal.
A company spokeswoman said this morning that the job cut announcement "didn't detail impact by location," but further details are forthcoming.
