Healthy meals are all the rage to keep

India Today - - COVER STORY -

calo­rie counts in check at the work desk and hot sum­mer days are per­fect for some hy­drat­ing sal­ads. YumTum salad de­liv­ery, started by techie-turned-en­tre­pre­neur Girish Pad­maraj, be­gan as a busi­ness idea. “I had spent nearly two decades in the IT in­dus­try. In 2015, I was at a point where I had to choose be­tween tak­ing on a new role within the com­pany or start­ing some­thing my­self. The lat­ter won and I started YumTum with a great idea but with a small fund of my own,” he says.

Pad­maraj looked at his IT days at a desk for in­spi­ra­tion and re­mem­bered the lack on healthy food op­tions which of­ten made him re­sort to junk food. “Be­sides, In­dia has a large un­healthy ur­ban pop­u­la­tion suf­fer­ing from life­style dis­eases such as obe­sity, hy­per ten­sion and di­a­betes to name a few,” he ex­plains. Putting to­gether his ex­pe­ri­ences and ideas, YumTum was launched as an af­ford­able salad-de­liv­ery ser­vice which fol­lows a sub­scrip­tion-only model to cut down on wastage and en­sure the fresh­est in­gre­di­ents go into your salad for that ex­tra crunch. They now of­fer cold sand­wiches too.

At yumtum. Price Rs 675 on­wards for a five-day sub­scrip­tion
