Finnish dairy cooperative Valio has announced a reduction of 80 positions at the company.

Its internal review ended on March 12, and the company said approximately 660 people were involved in the discussions, which resulted in a reduction of 80 staff, as well as the termination of temporary assignments and pension arrangements.

At the beginning of the negotiations, Valio estimated there would be 80-100 redundancies.

Marianne Tammela, vice president, human resources at Valio said the priority was assisting those affected, including through new roles created as a result of the negotiations.

The changes are part of Valio's three-year project package aimed at improving competitiveness and profitability. The new organization will enter into force on April 1, 2019.
