PortionMate is a family owned business located in Pepperell, Massachusetts. PortionMate began as an idea in 2007 which its inventor Susan Gougian developed into an accurate meal and snack-measuring tool. The inventor thought of the idea while looking for a quicker and easier way to measure her own food portions.

The inventor, Susan Gougian was encouraged by her family and friends to try to obtain a patent on her invention which she entitled “Measuring Cylinders”.

Susan Gougian was issued a U.S. Patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office in September 2011, and began marketing her invention under the trademark PortionMate.

PortionMate is a color-coded meal and snack-measuring tool that works with any diet plan. PortionMate makes the old method of comparing portion sizes to a deck of cards, dice, or a softball, obsolete.
