Improve nourishment, protect health, safeguard the environment: this is the Heallo startup mission.
The core business is that of research in the functional nutrition area: nourishment not only as food or pleasure, but also as a beneficial element for the body’s functions.
Heallo collects the experiences of Francesca Varvello, food technologist, always active in the field of research and recovery of by-products in grain processing, and Franco Varvello, entrepreneur, and marketer in the cereal field.
The Heallo startup has entered the top ten of the Kickstarter 2019 programme and is among the 9 selected by Deloitte for the Food Tech Accelerator project, thanks to the JAXplus patent, the extraction process of soluble fibres which reduce the glycaemic peak after meals.

“Thanks to the professional experience developed in IQVIA (IMS Health at the time) with Adriano Andriolli, I have been chosen by Heallo to contribute to the JAXplus launch strategy definition, making the most of my knowledge of the food industry, the health and wellness market and the forecasting of new products.”

“After years of experience as a marketing manager for important FMGC industry multinational companies, I decided to take up an entrepreneurial path.
