Hi fellow entrepreneurs, vegans, customers, team members, friends, family, investors, change-makers, sustainability heroes, and anyone else!
We started off our year with the challenge of rebranding from HappyBites (shout out to the OG’s who’ve known us since being HappyBites) to naanu (natural and nutritious) due to some newly filed trademarky.
Startupdate is a Switzerland-wide startup magazine that shares the latest news on Swiss startups with informative and instructive stories for those who are interested in founding a company and startups. In her recent interview with the magazine, Julia admits that running a startup feels like running an express train that never stops. Dig more about Julia's passion and journey in building naanu in this interview.
For the second time, naanu participated in the Basel Vegan Messe. This year, it took place in the majestic Elisabethen Kirche during 26-27 September. Meeting people directly like this always gives us a great chance to talk and listen to them- and of course, we're super happy that a lot of our cookies ended up in their bags! :)

A lot has been happening during 2019!
- With our first "edible" version of our cookies at the beginning of July when we went to vegana (a vegan fair in Zurich) in which we got a lot of valuable customer feedbacks (like, is it sugar-free version? Is it organic?).
- At the first vegan expo in Basel we talked to everyone about diets and health.
