Sixteen years ago, Quim Lorente, one of the founding partners of MIM Habits, suffered a variety of ailments: anaemia, lack of protein absorption, vitamin B12 deficiency, muscular weakness, tiredness, depression, apathy and excessive weight loss. In the hope of restoring his health and his quality of life, Quim started investigating. Eventually he found a solution in the form of good nutritional habits, and realised the crucial role that balanced gut microbiota plays in our health. During a dinner with Xavi Cortadellas, an entrepreneur with an exceptional gift for scaling innovative startups, Quim laid out his vision and the pair decided to share his learnings with the rest of the world, channelling the power of the startup model into the development of a new nutritional category: functional foods with immunomodulatory capacities. Quim and Xavi worked on the principle that our body is designed and dedicated to healing itself. All they needed to do was find the right formula: one that would enable our bodies to protect us and so extend our quality of life. Together, Quim and Xavi conceived a totally new type of bread that would help to heal the body from the inside. A bread that could be incorporated into our daily routine, with the aim of restoring the balance of our microbiota. From this vision, MIM Habits and the MIM COMPLEX were born.
