“What Bharat (Bhalla) and Varun (Kapur) have done at Yu is truly exceptional! To make packaged foods without any chemicals or preservatives that still taste as good as fresh is remarkable. Yu is a highly purpose driven brand that is bringing a revolution in the packaged food space through its diversified product categories. I am extremely pleased to associate with Yu and spread awareness around its wholesome and nutritious easy meals that are healthy as well,” said Hardik Pandya.
“We are excited to partner with Hardik in our endeavour to build a disruptive consumer brand in the instant food category.

Hardik Pandya's passion for health and wellness aligns perfectly with our brand's core values and mission. We are confident that Hardik’s association will allow Yu to significantly scale its business across all channels and target groups,” said Bharat Bhalla and Varun Kapur.
