SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 14, 2018--Just Desserts announced today the addition of Anthony (Tony) Zamudio as Director of Sales. Zamudio has over three decades of experience in the Bakery industry, working in key sales leadership positions at Treehouse, ConAgra, Bunge, and Dawn Foods. Tony started his career as a bakery manager for Haggens, and was Director of Bakery for Brown and Cole which provided him with extensive technical bakery experience.

“Tony understands the challenges faced by the instore bakery manager. As we are rapidly expanding our business, Tony’s knowledge and experience will be a great resource,” said Michael J. Mendes, CEO, Just Desserts. Dean Gold, who recently joined Just Desserts as Vice President of Sales, was looking for a sales leader who had the experience and energy needed to continue to expand distribution for Just Desserts. Gold noted, “I am excited to have Tony join our organization, as he adds deep industry knowledge, knows how to sell brands, and has a real passion for the industry. Tony has had the opportunity to work with a variety of key retail customers throughout the country and is very familiar with many of our key customers. I am confident Tony can hit the ground running, and will be a great asset.”

However, the product innovation and initiative to launch the Organic and Vegan product lines has really outpaced the industry,” noted Zamudio. “The new bakery Just Desserts has built is impressive, and investing in new equipment and building a talented team really shows a commitment for the future.”
