Good Foods LLC, whose product roster includes dips and guacamole sold in grocery perimeter departments, has been named the 2020 Refrigerated Foods Process of the Year by Refrigerated & Frozen Foods.

Good Foods was honored for its leadership in year-over-year growth, packaging, food safety, new product development, and plant expansions.
