Founded and fueled by the spirit of family, ZoRoCo Packaging offers experience, passion, and integrity. It all began when Cordy and Kim Rost were tired of the clamor of Southern California living and wanted to raise their growing family in Cordy’s native Idaho. Cordy had always dreamed of owning his own business. He had gained invaluable experience in corporate finance and was well positioned to start shopping for opportunities.
Not one to be left too far from his grandchildren, Kim’s father Marc Ikebasu, a successful Executive in his own right, soon followed the family north. Cordy and Marc quickly identified an available small frozen food packaging business called IdaCold. In 2007 they took the leap and a vision was born.
With Cordy and Marc’s energy and experience IdaCold grew stronger and larger. After 4 years they were bursting at the seams of their shared facility and needed to expand. Already in discussions to merge with a colleague of a dry allergen-free packaging company called AFI Packaging, they took yet another leap of faith and broke ground on their own facility next door to the AFI location. In 2012 the new frozen facility was complete, the merger with AFI was inked.
ZoRoCo Packaging continues to grow and thrive in Southwest Idaho. Cordy and Kim are proud Alumni of USC and will likely be unavailable most game day’s each fall ~ Go Trojans!
