A team for nutrition and environment
Youmeal was created for and by experts in nutrition and environment. Our solution addresses the need for innovation in line with trends in the food and restaurant industry.
Our startup, Youmeal, was founded in 2010 and is a spin-off of the Catholic University of Louvain. A university project which has matured over time, it has today become a business model in which we all believe. Our team is made up of experts in various sciences, specialized in nutrition and environment, allergies, IT and communication.
We work closely with several research centers and industry clusters, which allows us to stay one step ahead of the food tech market.
Our solution has also attracted 3 prestigious investors, who have joined our directors:
- Sambrinvest, a venture capital firm
- ScaleUP, a food- and environment-oriented venture capital firm
- Pierre-Olivier Beckers, the former CEO of Delhaize
Nutrition and environment experts face up against the food market
The diversity of our team is our strength, our engine. We bring everyone together to achieve the same goal: better nutrition for all.
With Youmeal, we give all food experts the opportunity to take advantage of the newest tools in food tech. Chefs, caterers and dietitians are thus armed with the information needed to guide consumers towards qualified choices. Our reactive and flexible solution allows them to respond to all consumer questions.

The solution that’s uniting the industry
Youmeal is revolutionizing the sharing of nutritional information. We have created a common tool for everyone at any step of the food production cycle. From suppliers to distributors.
