Solutiontopia was hired in December 2015 to bring Yumami to a co-packer and to market. Solutiontopia began with R&D to bring a solid theme to the umami based brand.
Working closely with the Yumami team Solutiontopia guided the brand into an Asian themed grab-n-go bean dip with four Japanese inspired SKU’s: Adzuki Bean: Ginger-Ponzu | Edamame: Green Pea-Wasabi | Lentil: Roasted Onion-Shitake | Black Bean: Yuzu-Chili. The next step was to find a co-packer that was aligned with the brand and could easily scale to national reach. This challenge was met and in March 2016, the first testing was completed. Yumami officially launched at Natural Products Expo East – Harvest Festival in the fall of 2016.
In 2017 Yumami won the coveted NEXTY Award at Natural Products Expo East for the Best Savory/Salty Snack category.
