Some 2,500 people are set to lose their jobs at the newly merged Kraft Heinz.
Spokesman Michael Mullen says affected workers on both side of the border will be informed in person and that all the jobs to be cut are salaried and do not involve factory workers.
About 700 of the job cuts will come in Northfield, Illinois where Kraft had been headquartered but have yet to announce where the other losses will be.
46,600 people are currently employed by the company which came into being after Heinz and Kraft merged in March of this year.
The job losses are part of its plan to slash costs after the merger.
