NEW YORK (AP) — Coca-Cola says it’s cutting 750 jobs in the U.S. as it continues to streamline its business.

The world’s biggest beverage maker says the jobs cuts will be across the board and that affected individuals will be notified in coming weeks. The cuts represent roughly 1 percent of the company’s workforce of 75,000 in North America.

A spokesman says about a quarter of the cuts will be in Atlanta, where the company is based.

In a memo to employees last month, Coca-Cola noted that it had identified “areas that must be improved” since buying the North American operations of its largest bottler in 2010. The memo also noted it was realigning its U.S. business into three geographies, down from seven, to reflect the successful structure in its food-service business.

One thought on “Coca-Cola to Cut 750 Jobs in US

  1. The Speedy style will come in two sizes, 30cm and 35cm but not all countries will carry both sizes. If my memory serves me right from the info card the sales assistant showed, size 30cm is only available in Japan, North America, China (Hong Kong not included) and another region which I can’t remember and size 35cm will be available in Asia, South America and Europe.
