SpartanNash Co., Grand Rapids, Mich., announced plans to exit its Indianapolis, Ind.-based Fresh Kitchen operations to improve operating earnings within the food distribution segment.

The company will shift its focus and expertise to its produce distribution and fresh cut operations, which have been the hallmark of the Caito Foods Service business.

The Fresh Kitchen, which was acquired in 2017 as part of SpartanNash's acquisition of Caito Foods Service, is a newly constructed facility that cooks and packages fresh protein-based foods and complete meal solutions for a number of customers.
