Behind the Meemehed are three young people from Nõo Real Gymnasium,
who decided to make a student company. The idea started in the summer of 2020. Originally, we planned to open mobile cocktail booth (moctile - non-alcoholic cocktail) - we gave up due to the pandemic. We searched for ideas again and we came back to the idea three years ago, when two members of the current company made a mini-company in the eighth grade and produced different honey butters. We felt that the venture was incomplete, as if goal had not been achieved, so we decided to bring the idea back to life. We took a critical look at the old idea and started brainstorming, deciding to exclude butter to make the product shelf life longer. Secondly, we selected berry flours that give a stronger taste. Then we researched what would be the innovation that other similar products do not have. When testing the products, we wrote down all the recipes on paper and assessed the taste, consistency and appearance of the finished mixture. The manufactured products were tested by our family members and friends, and we also tried to understand which products the customer would buy. The testing lasted for weeks, we analyzed the received feedback and selected the best tasting flavored honeys. During product testing, we discovered that from a chocolate flavored honey and hot milk, there is a way to make a hot chocolate drink - honey butter became a flavored honey with various uses.
By now, the student company has become a private limited company, and we will continue to work. Unfortunately, the name of the company could not be OÜ Meemehed, because it turns out that it is too close to OÜ Meemees. So we decided that the name of the company will be Maitsemesi OÜ, despite this we will continue with the Meemehed brand.
