In parallel with Lumentin®, a labor-saving system with a smart dispenser and imaging software is under development.
Fresh Organic Baby foods
OTTO is the story of two new parents – Tove and Mats Lönne – and their commitment to change the child nutrition industry by offering tasty, fresh, and organic alternatives to powders and the ultra-pasteurized canned food. Their first product – fresh Gruel OTTO, named after the couple´s first son – is a nutritious and fiber-rich blend of dairy milk and oats that has grown to a success throughout Sweden. This product has since been followed by a healthy smoothie with fresh fruit and oats, and the unsweetened yogurt LoveBugs with probiotic bacteria and oat fiber.
