Up to 16 jobs are to go at Wrigley's factory in Plymouth
Chewing gum manufacturer Wrigley is to cut more than a dozen jobs at its factory in Devon.
Up to 16 jobs are to go at the Estover site in Plymouth.
About 450 people are employed at the company's headquarters in its factory and offices. A further 200 are employed in other parts of the UK.
The firm, which also makes bubblegum at the Devon factory, said it did not want to make any compulsory redundancies and would look for volunteers to go.
Spokesperson Alex MacHutchon said: "We can confirm that a review of our operational structure within the Plymouth factory is under way to ensure the future competitiveness of the factory in the tough economic climate.
"Wrigley is currently consulting with associates that may be affected by the reorganization of its operational structure whereby a small number of positions within the company are at risk of redundancy."
