Fresh from the oven: Interbake’s new recipe for success

Reinventing the chocolate chip cookie after more than a century is no easy task, but Daryl Gormley hopes doing so will help carry Interbake Foods into its next chapter.

Gormley is four months into his role as the new president of the 116-year-old Richmond-based cookie and cracker manufacturer. He comes to Richmond after stints at Sara Lee Foods, Kraft Foods and Frito Lay and is tasked with leading Interbake on a plan of growth, modernization and what he said amounts to a massive rebranding.

Gormley said for the first time in more than 10 years, Interbake’s parent company, Canadian conglomerate George Weston Ltd., plans to ramp up its investments in Interbake’s equipment and workforce as the company transitions from a focus on low cost to faster growth rooted in innovation.
