Nulicious' Journey to Delivering Fresh, Organic Baby Purees Online
Nulicious was born from mission to assist parents in providing their children with the healthiest start in life, nurturing the roots of healthy eating habits. Their organic, cold-pressed baby purees are a testament to their commitment to freshness and quality.
Ensuring prompt delivery of freshly prepared baby puree available online is not the easiest task. The project involved High-Pressure Processing (HPP) treatment of products, extending their shelf life to 2-3 months. This duration included importation to the UK, shipping to the customer, and maintaining refrigeration throughout. Notably, the added complexity of managing an organic-certified logistic center made this endeavor both challenging and rewarding.

Agilery's Selection Process of Fulfillment Centers
Our team at Agilery had to make sure that this exceptional product reaches babies with the care they deserved. We assessed fulfillment centers based on a set range of criteria, prioritised by the product manager at Nulicious.
What can be criteria for a fulfillment center? For the baby food brand it was:
- based in UK
- certified for handling organic products
- chilled storage
- packaging capabilities
- last mile delivery service
In just 4 weeks we had the selection ready for client to make their top pick; and the purees were ready to be delivered our little ones.
We initiated a search for fulfillment centers within our network, subsequently expanding our exploration to include new logistic centers. Through our structured process, we identified a total of 54 potential partners that aligned with the client's criteria. To narrow down the options, we conducted thorough due diligence, ultimately presenting the top eight most relevant choices to the client for their final decision-making.
As their Chief of Product Development, Danae Stafyla, comments, “Agilery played a pivotal role in Nulicious's journey to bring organic cold-pressed baby food directly to homes. [...] Their support and expertise were instrumental in making our direct-to-consumer initiative a big success.”
