Sister River Foods was founded with the belief that eating healthful, minimally processed foods is a major key to feeling our best. Co-Founder and C.E.O., Shannon Schnibbe, first learned about the SOU SBDC when she attended the Rogue Valley Business Resource Fair, having been referred by Peoples Bank. She has since attended many workshops and has taken advantage of the one-on-one business advising. The SOU SBDC had been able to assist Shannon with her QuickBooks program, financial projections, and the development of her marketing plan. She is looking forward to taking advantage of the SOU Market Research Institute and the Social Media and Marketing workshops being offered.

Shannon’s family-owned business started making what is now called Parma!, while trying to figure out how to deal with severe allergies and “going raw.” Using only the highest quality ingredients and nothing you can’t pronounce, their recipes are simple, nutritious, and great tasting. They enjoyed sharing it with friends and family and everyone loved it! It is delicious, nutritious, and makes a cool gift. Parma! boosts your savory foods to the next level and can spice up your popcorn, pizza, pasta, soup, and salad. It’s also an excellent source of Omega 3s, B vitamins, protein, and trace minerals. Parma! is currently sold in stores stretching from Canada to Western Europe and locally at Food4Less, Shop n Kart, Natural Grocers. and the Medford and Ashland Food Co-ops.
