Please introduce your company in three sentences
We at Colti are young, travel-loving and socially committed people with the aim of bringing new, creative and healthy products to the market. True to our motto “inspired by the world, created at home” we make porridge with the flavours of the world mixed with a splash of local flair. Colti represents the tasty, healthy and long satisfying snack of your choice!
What is special about your products and their production?
We use hand cut and sun-dried organic fruit and the best organic whole grain oats from a regional Swiss organic mill. Our porridge has no added sugar and no additives. The products are filled by hand at a social institution in Switzerland. Our packaging consists of a high-quality kraft paper bag with a resealable zip fastener.
Are your products certified? If so, which certifications do they have?
We are Bio Suisse, EU organic and V-label (Swissveg) certified because the sustainability and quality of our products are very important to us.
Which channels do you use to sell your products?
Mainly via social media (Instagram and Facebook), partly via print media.
Why did you decide to work with Farmy?
The company’s philosophy appealed to us very much and is similar to ours.
What does a normal working day look like for you?
As a young start-up we are faced with new challenges and tasks every day. That’s why every day is a little different for us. One of the most frequent tasks is definitely the delivery of the products to our customers.
Have daily processes, routines or even sales channels changed due to the Corona crisis?
Unfortunately, yes. As we are currently unable to do any post-production and only have a small amount left in stock, we had to reduce certain activities in the company to a minimum. On the bright side, we now have time for other tasks that have been left on the back burner for quite some time.
Do you see any potential or opportunities arising from the crisis?
As a young start-up we were made aware of a number of areas in the current crisis that we could improve in the future. We are taking this as an opportunity to continuously develop our start-up and to emerge from the crisis stronger than before.
