We are Yu & Mi Company, a Japanese Food Company based in London. We are passionate about bringing you traditional Japanese products which help you to maintain a healthy diet.
More and more people are interested in adopting a healthy lifestyle, and the Japanese diet is proven to result in lower obesity, less heart disease and a longer lifespan. For many generations, the Japanese have been known for eating a diet filled with fresh unprocessed foods, lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, with plenty of variety.
I must say it is not like that nowadays. As in Western society, there are lots of processed foods sold everywhere in Japan. We used to live a healthier life in the past, but not so much anymore. Of course, I don’t want to say let’s go back to those days, but I want to remind myself of the good things from the past, and pass these traditions down to my children.
I have been living in the UK for 10 years, and I wanted my children to enjoy some of the healthy foods and flavours which I had when I was a child. I loved the fact that I could source Japanese ingredients which I could cook at home but I wasn’t sure if people knew what to do with them!
