LuFu skapades under hösten 2020 av en grupp på fyra studenter medan de läste till sin masterexamen i Entreprenörskap och Innovation på Lunds Universitet.
Med sina asiatiska rötter lyckades Yves övertyga resten av oss till att dela hans kärlek för lupinbönan. Detta blev startskottet på vårt gemensamma uppdrag, att skapa goda, lokalodlade och hållbara bönbaserade produkter för den svenska marknaden. Produkter som riktar sig mot svenska kunder som vill leva hälsosamt samtidigt som dem värnar om vår planet. Efter flera konversationer och diskussioner, kaffekoppar och goda skratt, så var det tydligt att vi alla hade olika styrkor och förmågor som kompletterade varandra samtidigt som vi alla delade liknande värderingar och mål. Framförallt delar vi ett starkt driv bakom ambitionen att leverera morgondagens mat hem till dig!
För närvarande är vi baserade i Lund.
