YUMCHI is your daily reminder to slow down, enjoy the moment and reconnect with the pace of the natural world
Launched in 2018, YUMCHI is the brainchild of Japanese-Korean chef Lily Hirasawa. Lily's family recipe, passed down from Korean mother to daughter, has been lovingly adapted for a Western palate. With its distinctive tang, we are proud to bring you kimchi in its most natural and organic form through the process of wild fermentation.
Authentic Asian heritage meets sustainable Western production methods, using the highest quality certified organic ingredients for gut-mind health, zero-food waste and female empowerment.

“This satisfying sour kimchi has a great kick of ginger, garlic and chilli. We especially love the radish as the veg has been left whole (stems, leaves and all!)"
“Japanese-Korean chef Lily Hirasawa creates her range of Napa cabbage and radish kimchi from the brand’s east-London HQ.”
THE GUT-BRAIN CONNECTION
The gut is home to your very own microbiome, a community or trillions of tiny microbes and over 4000 strains of bacteria. They work tirelessly to influence metabolism, blood sugar, immune response and even regulate mood and emotion.
It’s fascinating to learn that 70% of your immune system lives in your gut and is controlled by these hordes of friendly gut bacteria! So how does this work? Well, turns out there’s so much more to the gut than absorbing food and expelling waste.
The gut is the human body’s largest sensory organ, and a key advisor for the brain. This is all possible thanks to the Gut-Brain Axis.
