ALEXANDRIA, Minn. (KNSI) Tastefully Simple has cut 66 jobs at its corporate headquarters in Alexandria as part of an organizational restructuring.

The news was announced today in a letter from company founder Jill Blashack Strahan to employees.

Blashack Strahan says the company grew very quickly years ago, and over the years, they've become, "more efficient and effective at our jobs."  She calls the decision to cut jobs, "heart wrenching," but says the size of the company had become, " too large."

She says Tastefully Simple continues to be a, "debt-free company with a strong strategic plan."

Tastefully Simple was founded in 1995. It sells easy to prepare foods, which require two items or less to prepare.

More than 24,000 independent consultants sell Tastefully Simple products across the United States.
