Better Foods
isn't just our name.
is our philosophy.

how it all began

 

Long before we became entrepreneurs, we were already close friends who had met a few years prior as economics students in the vibrant university city of Göttingen. As an international epicenter of innovation and a hotbed of great ideas, Göttingen was just the spark we needed to start helping people all over the world, and to this day we're located just off the main campus.

We had our first good idea in 2014, when we began to focus more on the topic of lactose intolerance.

You're healthy!

At that time, there were already some people in our circle of friends who were affected by lactose intolerance, and they were constantly paying attention to what they were allowed to eat and what foods they should probably avoid. So often, they had to put up with the question "Are you sick?" after swallowing lactase tablets from sterile-looking medicine bottles, which often didn't have the desired effect to boot.

We ultimately ended up scouring the Internet for information to familiarize ourselves with the topic. It didn't take long before we realized that most lactase supplements were low-dose and chock full of chemical additives — plus, they looked terrible. Every tablet you took was accompanied by an uncomfortable “There's something wrong with you” feeling. We brought together a team of experts and were soon sure:

 


We can do IT better

No compromises were made in our search for partners. Only those who were genuinely prepared to see our vision through with us even came into consideration. In 2014, we finally had everything we had been looking for — we founded our company Better Foods GmbH with ambitious plans and a healthy dose of courage and begin implementing our concept for natural, highly effective lactase tablets. LactoJoy was born.


LactoJoy was just the first step

But after developing LactoJoy, we didn't just kick back and rest on our laurels. We knew that there were still many products on the market that needed improvement. Supplements that don't deliver on what they promise. We wanted to help these people — with simple, natural food supplements. That's why we decided to make our company name into our brand and drive forward the development of new products that are superior to the competition, both in terms of effectiveness and purity. LactoJoy became Better Foods Lactase, and since then many other products have been born out of our vision to do things better.

And one more thing:

We don't want nutritional supplements to be perceived as “medicine”. They're simply not the same thing.
