Food delivery startup Munchery cut about 30 employees this week. The company's founders Tri Tran, the former chief executive officer, and Conrad Chu, the company's chief technical officer, will leave the startup at the end of the month, CEO James Beriker said.

Beriker joined Munchery in November, with Tran becoming chief strategy officer. The company announced the reductions to employees Tuesday, said a person familiar with the matter, who declined to be identified because the cuts haven't been made public. The dismissals touched the company's culinary team, research and development staff, photographers and business development employees, the person said.
