When Angela Sutherland was pregnant with her first child, she discovered that the options for healthy, tasty, nutrient and dense baby food didn’t exist. Initially, it was a scary thought, but she saw opportunity which led to her partnering with good friend Evelyn Rusli and launching Yumi.
Yumi is a nutrition & wellness based company providing quality meals for the first 1,000 days of your child’s life. Yumi meals are fresh, organic, packed with nutrition and delivered RIGHT TO YOUR FRONT DOOR.
Both Co-Founders of Yumi are a force to be reckoned with.
