The executive is leaving on March 31 to become president and chief operating officer of Schwan's food service group. SureBeam has begun a search for a new president.

SureBeam Corp. is zapping its Vernon plant. The nation's largest food irradiation company said Monday that it would close the 1-year-old plant, citing sluggish demand on the West Coast for food treated by SureBeam's electronic germ-killing technology. Sales were "slower than we anticipated," SureBeam spokesman Mark Stephenson said. The Vernon plant -- one of four that SureBeam operates in the U.S. -- brings in just 1% of the company's domestic revenue.
