Food52 Cuts 15% Workforce

The food and home goods publisher Food52 laid off 21 employees Thursday evening, a figure that represents about 15% of its total staff, the publisher confirmed to Adweek.

The cuts primarily affected the editorial team, which has been thinned to a headcount of 15. The remaining editorial staff, as well as part of its creative team, have been reduced to 32-hour workweeks. They will continue to receive full-time benefits.

The cuts come on the heels of an earlier round of layoffs, in April, when the publisher eliminated 20 positions and attributed the decision to an internal reorganization. The April layoffs primarily affected the content, creative and marketing teams.
