Cargill has cut 45 more information technology jobs in Hopkins as it continues to rejigger its IT operations.

Last year, the Minnetonka-based agribusiness giant laid off 169 people at its tech operations in Hopkins. Those layoffs were caused by an IT outsourcing agreement Cargill had made with Tata Consultancy Services.

The recent layoffs were not related to Cargill's arrangement with Tata, company spokeswoman Gabrielle Nelson said in a statement. Laid off workers will be provided with a severance package and job placement support.

In March 2014, Cargill told employees it would move certain IT functions to Tata, a big global outsourcing firm based in India. The move was expected to play out over nine months and affect 900 Cargill jobs worldwide.
