About Youvit

Youvit intends to become a leading Emerging Asia based nutrition brand focused on unlocking the potential of the Aspiring Middle Class. Our (ad)venture was founded out of a passion for building consumer health ventures that serve consumers in densely populated economies across Emerging Asia.  

We believe that the nutrition 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, online sales and partnerships, thereby fostering consistent intake and repeat purchase.  

By developing our own brand of premium products, focused on Health, Beauty and Performance, we bring quality products within reach of the Aspiring Middle Class. By doing so, we can improve their diets and overall health, and consequently unlock 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 an enabler and accelerator versus a key revenue driver. 

Youvit’s first product, the world’s best tasting multivitamin gummy, was launched in April 2017 and quickly became the best-selling vitamin products selling over 1,400,000 sachets in the first 18 months in 15,000 retail locations. We have successfully launched six products with several new products planned with the aim to expand to 35,000 retail outlets by the end of 2023. To scale our operations into new sales channels, new categories and new markets, we intend to board strong new team members who are eager to support us with bringing our journey to the next phase.
