The Men behind the Marrow
Meet Ryan Wiebe, known to most around him as “Chez”, a nickname traced back to his university volleyball days. Ryan learned about the benefits of bone broth and the need for a local option from his wife, Dr. Melanie Leppelmann, who is a Naturopathic Doctor.
One day a client of Nature Doctors, who was on an anti-inflammatory diet protocol reached out to Ryan and asked if he’d make bone broth for her. She had been unhappy with options on the local shelves and as a working professional was far too busy to tend a stock for 16 hours. And so began his journey into the world of broth.
Meanwhile Shawn Vidal, a long time member of the Winnipeg music scene and budding local chef, had his eyes set on making his stamp in the local food scene. After just missing out on the cold-pressed juice craze an idea started to simmer in the back on his head for a hot broth bar.
Being best friends and neighbours it was only a matter of time until they both realized they were on to the same idea. Instead of becoming competitors the obvious choice was to join forces and create Bones & Marrow Broth Company.
