"Be part of the change with us" is Yuma's motto!
Yuma is a Belgian brand, founded more than two years ago with a strong ecological mission: to offer a new healthy protein source, nutritionally equivalent to that of meat but with an environmental impact similar to that of plants: the European cricket!
Their challenge: Yuma has been tailor-made to familiarize consumers with this new superfood that is crickets, through healthy and gourmet products!
To meet this challenge, they have developed a range of savoury aperitif biscuits enriched with cricket flour with gourmet flavours: multi-seed, herbs & peppers or even Emmental and Italian bouquet! The objective of this first organic and 100% artisanal range is to standardize the cricket in the minds of consumers. The ideal snack for foodies who want to do something for the planet while having fun!
Subsequently, the ambition is to market cricket burgers in order to replace traditional protein sources by offering a much more sustainable and healthy alternative.
After closing their first fundraising round in the summer of 2022, they are pumped up to move mountains and make Yuma the reference in the field of insect-based food!
If you too want to normalize crickets and bring a sustainable alternative to consumers, then go ahead and join the Yuma dream team!

A taste of the team
As a young team, they are continuously sharing to evolve the project through long strategic discussions and brainstorming! Outside of the office, they like to go for a drink or take a short trip to the Netherlands to visit the cricket farm! Trade shows abroad are also times when they take the opportunity to combine pleasure and work!
The little +'s that make Yuma so special: daily autonomy in decision-making, flexible working hours, a dynamic with strong values, an innovative corporate mission in an exciting sector and above all... of the FUN!
Fun fact: after a fundraising campaign in the summer of 2022, the entire team is working on the development of new Yuma products. Stay tuned!
