Yum produces sustainably crafted, artisan breakfast cereals in Nelson. It uses organic ingredients and recipes focused on ingredients available in New Zealand that are nutrient-dense and high in plant-based proteins and fats.
The business works hard to support local farmers and is in the process of launching a 100% New Zealand grown granola, fittingly named ‘No. 8’.
Yum has a strong group of followers in Nelson. They use an ingenious Yum honesty box (available 24/7) to fill their own containers, eliminating the need for packaging. Online sales have rocketed. Most of those orders are fulfilled in bulk using home compostable packaging. Yum has Climate Positive Business Operations certification with Ekos. It measured and offset 120% of its carbon footprint for 2019 with certified carbon credits.
