Balmer-Strasse 3, the company was founded in 2004 by three students from the “Tech” in Winterthur who not only had an irrepressible shared vision but also the now legendary start-up capital of 6,000 Swiss Francs. The company soon became popular by virtue of its first-class service and a wide range of products at an attractive price. Today, Power Food is one of the largest providers of sports nutrition and fitness articles in Switzerland.
