Swiss food and beverage giant Nestle informed employees at its plant in Waverly, IA on Monday that the company plans to eliminate more than 50 positions as it works to increase efficiency across its U.S. manufacturing footprint.

“Nestle has recently completed a thorough evaluation of the productivity of our various manufacturing facilities across the U.S., with emphasis placed on streamlining our operations so that we can bring products to market faster and more economically,” Nestle manager of corporate communications Edie Burge told Cedar Rapids, IA ABC News affiliate KCRG in a statement. “Therefore, we will begin to adjust employment levels at our Waverly facility to better match the needs of our business.”

The firm said it will phase out the positions through the end of 2018, with the majority of cuts coming from hourly workers.

About 250 workers are currently employed at the facility, which manufactures hot cocoa mix, Nesquick, and other products.
