Real Good Foods Company, based in the US, has named Tim Zimmer as its new CEO and announced plans to close a production facility in California. Zimmer, who previously served as the chief marketing officer at Smithfield Foods, brings over 30 years of experience in the food industry to his new role.

“In a statement, Bryan Freeman, executive chairman of Real Good Foods, expressed confidence in Zimmer’s ability to lead the company through strategic actions aimed at accelerating profitability. Zimmer is committed to driving operational excellence and unlocking value by streamlining the supply chain and improving manufacturing efficiencies,” reported Just Food.

Furthermore, Real Good Foods revealed its intention to close its manufacturing plant in the City of Industry (COI), California, with plans for a significant portion of production to move to their factory in Bolingbrook, Illinois. This move is expected to enhance margins, improve capacity utilization, and streamline the supply chain.

Mark Dientz has been appointed as the senior vice president of operations to oversee the supply chain changes resulting from the plant closure. The company’s growth has remained robust, with consumption of its branded products increasing by 53% year-over-year in the two months ending February 29, 2024.

Real Good Foods, established in 2016, specializes in frozen breaded chicken and fish products, as well as quesadillas and burritos. The company distributes its products to over 15,000 stores across the US, including major retailers like Costco, Walmart, Kroger, and Publix.

The closure of the California facility is part of the company’s strategic efforts to drive profitability and operational efficiency. Zimmer’s appointment signals a new chapter for Real Good Foods as they aim to strengthen their market presence and generate free cash flow for future growth.
