The Yutaka brand is becoming more and more synonymous with Japanese cooking. The Yutaka range of Japanese food products was introduced to the UK market in 1995. It is these many years of experience in dealing with the finest quality Japanese food ingredients that goes into the development of every Yutaka product – demonstrating the Japanese meaning of Yutaka being “Good Harvest”.

Today it’s very extensive and growing range includes frozen and store-cupboard ingredients for sushi as well as everyday sauces, soups, rice and noodle dishes. Yutaka is one of the leading suppliers to the Japanese restaurants, hospitality industries, food manufacturers and supermarkets in the UK and abroad. Yutaka

The company had been watercress growers in Dorset and Hampshire since the 1850s. And it was watercress that led them to wasabi – a remark a chef made about the only other crop he had seen growing in similar conditions was wasabi in Japan. That was enough to plant a seed in their minds.

The Wasabi company today not only grow and supply fresh wasabi, watercress and citrus commercially and to homes directly but also have an impressive wasabi label line that includes some great wasabi-based mayonnaise, powder, mustard, sauces, jam and vodka. The company has also gone to great lengths to source some of the best Japanese products available…Marusho ponzu and vinegars is a perfect example…as is a wide range of Japanese products from a range of other suppliers.
