How do we do things at yamo? And more importantly, why? Fasten your seatbelts, the way we do things might surprise you!
From babies to school children, we make parents’ lives easier by providing nutritious and delicious products to help children grow up healthy and strong.
The status quo does not satisfy us, and we're proud of that! 💪
6 reasons that make us special:
We have been working closely with parents since day one, to ensure that yamo fits your needs, allowing you to concentrate on enjoying everyday life with children. 👶
Must baby food be heat sterilised to be consumable? No!
Cooking baby food at temperatures above 100 degrees is a great way to destroy much of the naturally occurring vitamin C, vitamin A and the other heat-sensitive vitamins. This is why we use high pressure to eliminate bacteria, while keeping not just vitamins, but also the natural fresh taste and colour 🌈 untouched.
yamopowers are our commitment to providing children with the nutrients that are crucial in those early and fragile years. This is why our recipes are tuned to naturally contain nutrients which support the age-appropriate development of your child.
We never add sugar, period. Thanks to our gentle production and innovative recipes, our products are already mouth watering and delicious. 😊
Thanks to our ingenious team of experts and our innovative technologies, we are developing tomorrow’s products for today’s kids. We were the first company in Europe to develop vitamin-preserving cold-pressed baby food, and also the first in Europe to launch plant-based children’s yoghurts.
All yamo products are made with 100% natural and organic ingredients. 🥕 Only the highest quality is good enough for us.
Optimising our ecological footprint, and working as resource-efficiently as possible has been part of our DNA since the very founding of yamo. 🐝
In businesses and in households ~30% of fruits 🥑 and vegetables 🍐 end up in the garbage every year. Interestingly, a large part of that is due to their limited shelf life.
Thanks to the high-pressure technology we use at yamo, fruits and vegetables in our products remain tasty and safe to eat for up to 2-3 months, and in some cases longer. All of this without the addition of chemicals or preservatives and without boiling the food into an unrecognizable brown mass.
Since we treat our products with high pressure rather than high temperatures, we achieve energy savings of approximately 20% 🌱 compared to energy-intensive heat treatment.
We are often asked why we do not deliver our delicious yamo products in glass jars. There are good reasons for this: Our packages are put under 6000 bar high pressure after they are sealed. Imagine if a family of elephants family 🐘🐘🐘 were twerking on a cup of baby food: glass wouldn’t stand a chance.
PET also causes much lower CO2 emissions!
This may sound surprising, but glass is very energy-intensive to manufacture and recycle. Due to its high weight and volume, requires a lot more energy to transport and store.
We are constantly working on becoming even better and more resource-efficient, such as by reducing the amount of packaging materials, switching to more efficient transport mechanisms, and much more. 👈
We support family in need with our Giving Back programme, and with a purchase at yamo you help directly ☺️
For every two yamo products purchased, we donate a healthy, nutritious meal for malnourished children in rural India, one of the poorest regions of the world, in cooperation with Welthungerhilfe.
We donate unsold, but still delicious, products to the charities “Tafel” and “Tischlein deck dich” which give them to children 👶🏼 from underprivileged families for free.
It all began with a question...
«How come baby food from the store is older than the kid who eats it?» 😳
We went to the kitchen in search of answers and made baby food that we wanted to eat ourselves.
Our first food tasters were enthusiastic. And so were their mommies.
The ❤️ for our idea was so big that we decided to found a company. We quit our jobs, started yamo, and went on to develop the first fresh baby food in Europe.
