ATLANTA (AP) — Coca-Cola will cut up to 350 management positions, mostly in its Atlanta headquarters during the next few months.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports Coke said Monday that it’s making the cuts in its North American business unit which has about 8,000 employees.

Company spokesman Kent Landers says Coke has been implementing a new model that returns ownership of its bottling system to local operators.

Landers says changes include re-orienting jobs and adding new ones to meet Coke’s growth agenda. The cuts are in addition to the 1,200 corporate jobs Coke has been cutting in a move announced roughly a year ago.


Coca-Cola is providing outplacement help to those losing their jobs. Excluding bottlers, it has around 5,000 employees in Georgia with the majority in Atlanta.
