Our Story

 Cordy and Kim Rost with their kids

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 is a former aerospace engineer, building satellites, and also has a strong corporate finance background.  He had always dreamed of owning his own business and is a true Entrepreneur at heart. 

 

Kim is a structural engineer by trade and plays a critical role in the design and project management of every plant expansion.  She recently completed her term as Board Trustee with Nampa School District. 

 

Kim’s father, Marc Ikebasu, a successful Executive within the food industry, followed the family to Idaho.  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.  Their hard work and experience supported tremendous growth with IdaCold.  After 4-years they were bursting at the seams and were ready to expand. 

 

In 2012 a new frozen plant was completed, along with an acquisition of a neighboring allergen-free packaging company, called AFI Packaging.  The company re-branded as ZoRoCo Packaging, and our HQ main campus was established.

Our Name

Zoey, Ronin, and Cole

ZoRoCo stands for our founders Cordy and Kim’s children’s names:  Zoey, Ronin, and Cole.  We’ll reserve the meaning and significance of our company logo to when we chat.  You could even ask Ronin or Cole, who are both company employees.

What Our Clients Think

"This email is long overdue, but I couldn't let another day go by without expressing my appreciation for our relationship over the years. 

 

Despite the inevitable ups and downs that come with any business, we've always been able to count on your stellar team to rise to the occasion and help us navigate through challenges. From last-minute requests to unexpected problems, your team has supported us - consistently demonstrating a commitment to excellence that sets you apart. 

 

You’ve been even more than all that to us though.  The help and grace you gave us, especially the past few years, was absolutely intrinsic to our very survival. Truly. We very likely would not have been able to stay in business without the help and understanding you offered at a time when our whole world was crumbling. I will forever be grateful. 

 

We're excited to see what 2024 has in store for us both and look forward to continuing our partnership for years to come.

 

Thank you again for everything you do!"
