Waverly, Iowa – Job cuts are coming to the Nestlé plant in Waverly. The company reports 56 positions at the plant will be eliminated between now and over the course of next year as part of an effort to “streamline operations” across the United States. William Werger, Waverly’s Economic Development Director, says Nestlé is among the city’s top 10 employers.
The Nestlé plant in Waverly currently employs 254 people. The company reports 49 hourly jobs will be phased out, along with seven positions paid a salary. Werger is confident the 56 workers who will eventually be losing their jobs can find other work in the area.
The company notified employees in Waverly about the changes on Monday. According to the city of Waverly’s website, the Nestlé plant produces items such as Instant Breakfast, Hot Cocoa Mix, Instant Non-Fat Dairy Milk and various sauces.
