The problem this product solves
Today's baby food industry is characterized by hard boiled, sterilized and processed canned food. The nutrition disappears in the process and must be added afterwards. Due to the treatment most baby food has a shelf life of up to two years in room temperature.
In recent years, as we are becoming more aware of what we eat, we have been able to see a significant development of the product range in the grocery stores.
However, baby food has remained worryingly untouched by this development. The lack of fresh, good and unprocessed baby food is a problem.
How the product solves it
We believe that our children have the right to fresh, healthy and nutritious food. Our product allows parents to offer their children organic nutritional food, which is a perfect basis for a healthy lifestyle.
Our fresh baby food made from locally grown Swedish ingredients is unique on the market, made from scratch in our factory. Without any unnecessary processes or additives to provide unnaturally long durability, we make sure to keep most of the taste and nutrition intact.
It is completely fresh from factory to plate.
This product allows parents to serve their youngest ones high quality food even in periods of stress and time shortage. There is something for every taste as we have designed various portions of nutritious Swedish ingredients, such as meat, chicken, fish, fruit and vegetables. The child adapts at an early age to eat clean healthy food – the best start possible for a long and healthy life.
Certified organic, locally grown, Swedish ingredients, stackable, lightweight packaging, easy to serve straight from the container, designed for different ages, own factory in Halmstad, Sweden, IP-certified, approved for production of baby food.
Product use cases
A typical Tip & Tot-family: The product is a very good option on the market for those who value Swedish raw materials with high quality. Many people feel that they do not have the time to cook their own baby food, still they are aware that heavily preserved food is not the best solution. We provide them with the possibility to buy ready made fresh food with good conscience.

Consumer trends 2017 speak for increasing sales of organic products on the Swedish market.
Swedish toddler parents have a high awareness when it comes to organic baby food, and the trend is escalating. The Swedes are expected to spend almost SEK 30 billion on organic food this year, compared to 10 billions three years ago.
Everything indicates that the cooking process also increases in importance to the target group.
Our home market in Sweden has been quick to embrace Tip & Tot. The total children's food industry in Sweden was valued at SEK 1.5 billion in 2016.
- Market leading baby food producer on the Swedish market for baby food is Semper. Their products are canned and preserved.
- Nestlé: do not offer fresh baby food.
- Swedish HiPP Barnmat: have an organic profile, however their baby food is preserved and canned.
We are today the only Swedish baby food producers that is doing all of the following:
- Using exclusively Swedish organic locally grown ingredients.
- Prepared with a minimum of processing which makes it fresh in the proper sense.
- Produced by ourselves us in our own factory in Halmstad, Sweden.
Unique differentiator from competitors
What separates Tip & Tot from other organic baby food producers is that the product is fresh. This means that the food is unprocessed and without additives. Instead of a two-year shelf life, our food has a shelf life of 25 days in the fridge.
Another competitive advantage is that all ingredients are Swedish and the food is manufactured in our own factory located in Sweden. The packaging is lightweight and stackable, which facilitates transportation and storage.
Tip & Tot has a unique concept for every family who care for their children’s health.
Company revenue streams
Gross profit is, on average, 65 %. The surplus is expected to be maintained at a high level, due to the fact that the factory is already paid and free of debt. We have signed partnerships with three of the largest food companies in Sweden: ICA, Coop and Hemköp. We are approved for direct deliveries to the stores, which means that we do not go via their central warehouse at this time. In September, we will sign a partnership with Mat.se.

Approved for manufacturing of baby food
By increasing sales and revenues, we will receive a positive cash flow in 2018 and the result will be that the value of the company will increase.
According to our strategy and budget, we will multiply our turnover by 2020
Sales are the key to success, and in order to achieve our sales goals, marketing needs to be improved both for retailers and for end customers. Our current challenge lies in getting the parents to know where our products are located in the stores. A good marketing campaign would increase the knowledge.
When it comes to further development as the sales are gaining momentum, there is an already existing capacity to scale up the production. Once we reach our target group, sales-related key figures are expected to increase. Economically, the company including the factory, is currently self-financed with good solidity.
