We helped ProYouth to:

Since launching her product, ProYouth founder Marina Wegorek has been nominated for Food & Drink Entrepreneur of the Year with the Great British Entrepreneur Awards.
ProYouth have also been able to hire marketing staff to support their growth efforts.
ProYouth Nutrition wanted to launch a range of nutrition-dense snack bars aimed at kids and young adults with very active lifestyles. They required the LAFIC team to turn their idea from a prototype into a product.
ProYouth’s founder, Marina Wegorek, joined LAFIC as a passionate mother of two active children, dreaming to make a difference in helping the next generation to make healthy food choices. Marina needed the LAFIC team's support to get her snack bars market-ready. She needed particular help establishing their brand identity and identifying if any legal nutrition claims can be made.
Three members of the LAFIC team spent a total of 22 hours working with the business. LAFIC also engaged two external consultants on behalf of ProYouth.
LAFIC also gave Marina access to an IP Consultant to help her make cost-effective decisions about branding ProYouth Nutrition snack bars.
ProYouth Nutrition are officially launching their range of nutritionally dense snack bars at the end of 2019;
LAFIC’s Structured group workshops gave ProYouth the opportunity to learn about industry-specific product development processes and best practice.
Micro-nutritional lab testing was completed to help ProYouth Nutrition to gain market differentiation.
Since launching, Marina has been able to hire a member of staff to help with ProYouths' marketing needs.
In July 2020, Marina was shortlisted for the title of Food & Drink Entrepreneur of the Year at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards.
I can’t express how truly valuable access to such expertise and support to a business is, to make their business dream a reality.
