Yummly is a semantic web search engine for food, cooking and recipes. It ‘understands’ food on a variety of levels, allows users to search by ingredient, diet, allergy, nutrition, price, cuisine, time, taste, meal courses and sources, and ‘learns’ about users based on their likes and dislikes. Yummly uses this information to categorize food for search and make recommendations. Yummly is located in Redwood City, California, previously at 165 University Avenue - the former home of other successful internet companies.

Yummly has 15 million active users in the U.S. and recently launched their website in the U.K.[1]

Yummly has a suite of proprietary technology that makes its semantic search possible.

History[edit]

The company was founded by David Feller and Vadim Geshel in early 2009. Feller was previously with Half.com, eBay and StumbleUpon. Yummly has raised 7.8 million in venture capital and is backed by First Round Capital, Harrison Metal Capital, Intel Capital, and Unilever Ventures[2]
