Founders: Rosalind & Clayton
Rosalind (Roz) and Clayton McCallard (their last name is a portmanteau of their birth surnames, Ballard and McCartney) met in 2007 and immediately bonded over their shared love of metal, puns, and veganism (pretty typical foundations for a marriage, really).
Snackrilege grew out of our shared passions, and we are constantly humbled and overjoyed to get to share them with the world--with YOU. Thank you for letting us feed you, thank you for supporting small business, and thank you for deriving joy from our puns and sandwiches (we're going to be optimistic and assume you are, in fact, deriving at least a little joy!).
To make perfectly tasty, affordable, plant-based foods that people can grab-and-go for anytime delicious satisfaction. We won't be satisfied until Snackrilege products are available worldwide. We want to make eating tasty vegan food easy for everyone! Look for our products in the grab-and -go section, and in select stores (with more stores coming soon!) in the freezer section. All our products are non-GMO, we use locally made Portland French Bakery bread and we get many of our ingredients from another local vegan company, Earthly Gourmet that has the same ethics-driven approach to running a company that we strive to achieve at Snackrilege.
We believe in creating a better world for all through veganism. We stand for social justice, healthy communities, healthy people, and animal rights. We believe in higher wages and happy employees. We believe that every creature should have the right to a happy and fulfilling life. We believe in delicious food and finding your joy. We believe in having the most fun and doing the most good.
We aspire to live our mission every day--we've raised thousands of dollars for sanctuaries in our area and we're always happy to donate to your non-profit event (5 years in and we've yet to say no to a platter of sandwiches or merchandise for your raffle!). We offer competitive wages and employee meals, discounts, bonuses and other perks--see our careers page for openings and opportunities. Roz is an active member of the Main Street Alliance, is currently a member of Commissioner Jo Anne Hardesty's Business Council. Roz and Clayton have both spoken at various VegFests and other events, and Roz has presented on councils, panels, and committees on her experience starting a business from the ground up.
