The history of LYO FOOD is strongly linked to its cooperation partner Lyovit - one of the leading producers of freeze-dried herbs, fruits and vegetables with 20 years of experience in the market. To meet the needs of climbers, sailors, backpackers and other extreme sports enthusiasts, Lyovit used its revolutionary technology and know-how to launch the first series of freeze-dried meals in 1998. The product was named"Lyofood" and was warmly received in the market.
Due to the increasing demand for healthy and tasty freeze-dried meals, a new international expansion strategy was developed. The Lyofood brand was separated from the parent company and restored as LYO FOOD. With a new design, new packaging and the proven quality LYO FOOD launched its new product line called LYO EXPEDITION.
