yumda now part of LUMITOS

Europe’s leading provider of B2B portals has expanded its portfolio to media outlets for the food and beverage industries


LUMITOS, provider of market-leading B2B online portals and newsletters in chemistry, life science, lab equipment, pharma and analytics, has taken over the B2B portals and Launched in October 2013, the specialist portals for the food and beverage industries publish specialist information in the form of product and company presentations, research-related publications, market studies, white papers and job advertisements.

Ever since yumda was launched, LUMITOS has been providing extensive support: the Berlin-based provider of online information technologically implemented the entire yumda portal that Norman Lizurek and his partners had founded with the support of K-Invest, the venture capital business of the KLiNGEL Group. From the beginning, the young Nuremberg-based company yumda has benefited from the many years of expertise of Europe’s leading online information provider, LUMITOS, and of K-Invest. “We are delighted that yumda has become part of the LUMITOS family,” Stefan Knecht, Managing Director of LUMITOS, points out. “By taking over this specialist of the food and beverage sectors, we continue to successfully implement our growth strategy in other B2B markets and further expand our market leadership.” Dr Christoph Hellmann, Managing Director of K-Invest, adds: “In recent years, yumda has developed into a central hub of information for the food and beverage industries. The takeover by LUMITOS allows the current market position to be strengthened even faster.”

With its now seven B2B online portals and newsletters, LUMITOS ensures that five million users from all over the world stay informed about the latest industry developments. The portals serve the chemistry, life science, lab equipment, pharma, analytics and food & beverage markets. A total of 23 employees in Berlin and Nuremberg are now committed to the success of industry and science, from medium-sized companies to international corporations. LUMITOS’s success is based on its knowledge of what B2B users search for, what interests and what inspires them. “This extensive expertise and the many years of experience will now also benefit the customers and users of the yumda portals,” says Norman Lizurek, founder of yumda and now Head of Food & Beverage at LUMITOS. “I am convinced that our joint forces will bring about further successes.”
