MyWebGrocer, the Winooski-based online shopping and marketing firm, said it has laid off 18 employees in Vermont as part of a company-wide restructuring to respond to "rapid changes" in the market.

The employees were offered severance packages, and the Vermont Department of Labor has been asked to help them find work, according to the company.
"The world of digital grocery is moving faster now than at any time during the last 17 years," said Barry Clogan, president of retail solutions, in a prepared statement. "In this fast-moving market it is important we align our teams and capabilities to support our customers and evolve our successful e-commerce and media offering."

The company, which also had layoffs in October 2016, declined further comment.

MyWebGrocer provides online support for grocery companies. It currently employs 315 people in the U.S., Canada, England and Ireland.

California private equity firm HGGC owns MyWebGrocer.
