About YOU

We believe that the functional food industry is broken and ripe for disruption. Large corporations serving mass market consumers put health-sounding brand names on basically unhealthy products, while the well-informed millennial population in emerging economies is craving for young and innovative brands that offer affordable premium products, that have sustainability in their DNA, and that have a passion for the consumer they serve. Our distribution strategy is based on retail, direct sales and subscription offerings, thereby fostering consistent intake and repeat purchase. By developing our own brand of premium products, focussed around the health enhancing themes of vitamins, fibres and hydration, we bring quality products within reach of the Aspiring Middle Class. By doing so, we are able to improve their diets and overall health, and consequently unlocking their potential. Although data driven decision making and IT play an important role in the development of our venture, we believe in an old school business approach, based on solid fundamentals. Technology is for us is an enabler and accelerator versus a key revenue driver. YOU’s first product, the world’s best tasting multivitamin gummy, was launched in April 2017 and quickly became the best selling vitamin product at various retailers. We successfully launched a second product for kids in 2018. In 2019, six new products will hit the shelves of retailers, while we are expanding our Points of Sale to over 25,000 by December 2019. To scale our operations into new sales channels, new categories and new markets, we intend to board strong new management team members who are eager to support us with bringing our YOU Journey to the next phase. You will be part of a young, ambitious and fast-paced entrepreneurial organization. As a fundamental part of the team we expect you to truly feel part of, and contribute to the business. We are ambitious and ready to work hard to achieve our goals, we expect nothing less from you. We value people that get stuff done, don’t take shortcuts and are passionately curious. A potential match is street-smart, ‘hungry', and willing to embark on a journey of a lifetime. We prefer entrepreneurial and energetic ‘can-doers’ that like to roll-up their sleeves versus sitting in a suit in a fancy office. Corporate bureaucrats are advised not to apply! “The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones that do”
