As Europe’s first digital native vertical brand for child food, YAMO is about to change a whole category for good.

The Zug-based startup, YAMO, provides nutritious and delicious products to help children grow up healthy and strong. Their products are made of 100% organic and natural ingredients and are free from sugar and any additives. They also contain vitamins and nutrients that support the age-appropriate development of children.

YAMO also ensures that they lessen their ecological footprint, as they work as resource-efficiently as possible. Their high-pressure technology allows fruits and vegetables in their products to remain tasty and safe for up to 2-3 months or longer. With this same technology, they achieve energy savings of approximately 20% compared to energy-intensive heat treatment. Lastly, they use recyclable PET packaging, which causes lower CO2 emissions.

YAMO’s Beginnings

Tobias Gunzenhauser co-founded YAMO with Luca Michas and José Amado-Blanco in 2016. They created the brand to give parents healthier and easy food choices for their children. Additionally, the idea started with the realization that most baby foods are older than the babies who eat them. YAMO is recognized as the first company in Europe to develop vitamin-preserving, cold-pressed baby food. And they are also the first to launch plant-based children’s yoghurts.

YAMO is available in Switzerland, Germany and Austria. Since May 2018, it has been sold in dm, Europe’s largest drug store chain. And as of August 2018, YAMO is also in Coop, one of Switzerland’s largest retailers.
