Health and wellness oriented frozen foods manufacturer The Real Good Food Co. Inc. said Wednesday that its new USDA and gluten free certified production facility has opened in Bolingbrook, IL.

The facility will double the firm’s current capacity and support the company’s growth plans, a company release detailed. Real Good’s Bolingbrook location is its second manufacturing plant.

“As we continue to work to increase capacity to meet demand for our products, Bolingbrook represents the next step in our growth journey,” Gerard Law, the company’s chief executive officer, stated. “Opening the Bolingbrook facility within six months of signing the lease demonstrates the speed, agility, and experience of our organization. I am proud of our dedicated team and supplier partners that have worked long hours to open this plant on time and on budget.”

High-throughput, flexible production lines were installed to produce Real Good’s existing portfolio of products and new items like grain-free breaded poultry and zero-sugar Asian entrees. Production will be phased over the year. When the facility is fully ramped up, products made there will generate about $250 million to $300 million in net sales

Real Good selected the Bolingbrook site because it is close to distribution centers and raw material suppliers.
