Hummus Prep, Production and Packaging (Part-Time, Fridays only)

Company Overview

Obour Foods

Obour Foods Website
A finance geek by trade, I founded Obour Foods in August of 2017 after years of dissatisfaction with the mass-produced hummus that was out there on shelves. The store-bought brands are all filled with preservatives, concentrates, and powders - stuff that doesn't belong in hummus, let alone any of the food we eat! Obour takes hummus and tahini back to its roots, then takes those roots and turns them into something never been done before. You won't be disappointed, promise.
