Smarter Logistics has initiated legal proceedings against Real Good Foods, filing a lawsuit in the Superior Court of New Jersey, Camden County, under docket number CAM-L-983-24. This action comes after a prolonged dispute over unpaid services, raising significant concerns about Real Good Foods’ financial practices and its impact on vendors and the logistics sector.

Background of the Dispute

Smarter Logistics, which has provided logistics services to Real Good Foods, claims it has not received payment for over a year’s worth of services. These services were critical in transporting frozen goods to major retailers such as Costco and Walmart. The company alleges that this non-payment is part of a broader pattern of financial mismanagement by Real Good Foods, which includes redirecting funds intended for vendor payments to other internal uses.

Legal Proceedings Initiated

The complaint, lodged by Smarter Logistics through their legal representatives at McManimon, Scotland & Baumann, LLC, details the contractual agreements and communications regarding the assigned payments. The legal action seeks to recover the unpaid dues and addresses the alleged financial misconduct by Real Good Foods.

Implications for Real Good Foods

This lawsuit brings to light serious accusations against Real Good Foods, including potential vendor fraud and a lack of financial transparency. Once regarded as a reliable entity in the frozen food industry, these allegations have led to a significant reassessment of the company’s business practices and sustainability.

The Call for Transparency

The ongoing dispute underscores the necessity for rigorous financial compliance and transparency in business operations. Smarter Logistics’ public disclosure of this issue highlights the need for such measures to protect the interests of vendors and partners within the industry.
