Winner of the Start-up Slams 2023

 Onima (ex-Yeasty), a French start-up represented by Juan Londoño, Co-Founder and COO, is the winner of this year’s edition of the Start-up Slams, from the “By & Co-products” category.

"It’s a really great opportunity because we just changed our name a few weeks ago. We used to be called Yeasty and we’re now Onima. So it’s great visibility for us and it was a crash test for the new brand, so that’s went really well. We’ll also be gaining support from Rockstart and that is a great programme that will be looking forward. And we’ll also be coming next year to NutrEvent as part of the price."

Onima produces a delicious, nutritious and sustainable super-ingredient through the natural power of yeast, while maintaining a competitive positioning to fulfil our mission: producing a sustainable protein for the planet, providing an alternative protein for all.
