The story behind Homey - two passionate health professionals (a medical doctor who has great experience in treating chronic medical illnesses and a certified dietitian who always advocate preventing, curing or treating chronic diseases with food as medicine) that came together because of their belief that food should be life giving.
It all started with our founder, Dr Tan Wooi Peng, a medical doctor who strongly believes that a balanced and nutritious diet is not only essential for maintaining good health, but also vital for the management of many health conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, overweight etc. He realises that many patients hardly follow advices from doctors and dieticians after consulting them. Many excuses are often given such as the hassle of preparing healthy meals as well as misconception about the higher cost for getting the ingredients of the meals.
Homey co-founder, Yi Chien who is a certified dietitian, believes in the power of food to enhance lives and improve health. She has great passion in inspiring and improving health of others through nutrition and healthy eating. She uses the latest scientific evidence to develop personalised eating plans to help patients/clients reaching their health goals as there is no "one plan fits all" approach.
Two like-minded people were connected when Yi Chien did her clinical attachment at Dr Tan's clinic. Two of them are aligned around a common vision. With great enthusiasm, they immediately started to create Homey platform with the mission to provide people with easy access to healthy meals.

Besides managing his own clinics, he has vast experience in FMCG and healthy product business. With these experience, he is well positioned to inspire the team working toward the same goal by implementing the company mission and to lead Homey through continued growth.
