Jess Messer is an activist, a mother of three, and the head of Savouré. A former researcher and human rights worker, Jess decided to take a break from trying to save the world and tap her entrepreneurial spirit after leaving the US for Canada. Upon falling in love with Montréal she founded Savouré in 2011 and jumped into the local food and farmers market scenes with both feet. She is driven by her dream of spreading the beauty of Vermont and Québec through food while strengthening local food economies by creating delicious, thoughtful, handcrafted bubbly drinks that are made from real food grown where she lives.
Now back in Vermont, Jess transplanted her family and her business to her childhood home in Starksboro. She is also co-owner of Tandem, a Main Street production kitchen, event space, and tasting room in Bristol - you can come by any time the lights are on and try the latest flavours of Savouré on tap.
