Keeling will take on the job immediately from her current position as finance director of the company’s cake decoration division, according to a statement today (15 July). Rai had left the struggling business earlier in the year under mutual consent.

Real Good Food is now a trimmed-down business following the sale of a number of assets to restore the company to growth, with two “profitable” divisions now left – its cake decorations operations and Brighter Foods. 

Last year, the financially-embattled firm had to raise funds from a share offering and agree loan extensions with its major shareholders. It offloaded its jams and preserves business R&W Scott, Haydens Bakery and the Garrett Ingredients subsidiary.

Chief executive Hugh Cawley said: “We are delighted that Maribeth has agreed to assume the role of group CFO and we look forward to working with her to continue the improvement in the performance of Real Good Food.”
