Organic Herbal Products Company Prioritizes Employees Over Profit

EUGENE, OREGON (November 18, 2021)—Mountain Rose Herbs has announced it is increasing wages by 10% for all non-director employees throughout the company and has raised the starting wage for all new hires. This across-the-board increase benefits more than 200 employees at an annual cost increase of $800,000 for the privately-owned company.

“Our company’s purpose is people and planet before profit, and sharing our success with our employees is the first step towards making this happen,” said owner and CEO Shawn Donnille. “It is for this reason that we have increased pay for all non-director employees. This is most important for guaranteeing a fair and livable wage for Oregonians. Our hope is that other companies will see this as inspiration to follow suit and join us.”
