Guam - Due to increasing costs of manufacturing and other external factors, at end of this month Foremost Foods will no longer be manufacturing products at its Tamuning plant. According to the company's website, "Foremost will shift production of certain products to partner facilities in the U.S. mainland and Asia and shipped to distribution centers in Guam, the CNMI and Micronesia".
CEO Marcos Fong states they will continue to provide quality Foremost products through our prequalified off–island partners. "The Foremost brand and products our island enjoys are not going anywhere and we will continue to bring our customers food and beverage options that satisfy the tastes of our unique island communities. To do so, we are repositioning our company to sustain the Foremost brand and our employees," Fong stated.
Some products and employees are expected to be affected as a result of the closure.
