    Sue Adams was a speech pathologist evaluating and treating patients with dysphagia (swallowing disorder) when she decided to become an entrepreneur. For years she watched patients on soft textured diets, which can include sufferers of Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and dementia, endure bland or low-quality food. Adams was inspired to create better-tasting meals for those who are put on a soft-texture diet and founded Blossom Foods in 2006. The company has since distinguished itself from competitors with unique, fresh ingredient, high-quality pureed, ground, and soft chopped (Levels 4, 5, and 6 IDDSI) menu options. With support from the community in its hometown of Oakland, Calif., Blossom Foods has built a kitchen for manufacturing its products and a team of loyal employees. Looking forward, Adams would like to educate the public about the company and continue to expand the business’ current portfolio of healthcare partners.  Blossom Foods is distributed nationally by US Foods and Food Service of America (FSA).
