YUMCHI founder - aka Kimchi Queen - Lily Hirasawa, shares an update on our organic credentials.
The keen-eyed of you may have noticed a small green sticker on the back of our YUMCHI packaging. This is because we are currently in the process of industry-standard organic certification with the Organic Food Federation.
These standards are are at the forefront of promoting organic methods and maintaining best practice within the organic food sector. It is vital for us to be absolutely compliant with the rules and regulations of being an organic product.
This update is taking us a little longer than expected. In the meantime, we have put a small green sticker on the back of our packaging, over the word ‘organic’. Don’t be alarmed, this is just temporary. It is still the same YUMCHI Kimchi you are purchasing. Our recipes are, and always has been, organic. We go to extreme measures to ensure we get the tastiest organic ingredients.
We would like to say thank you to all our partners who have been so patient with us through this process. We are a tiny team based in the heart of London, and are proud to work with organisations that are so supportive of small and passionate food companies.
If you have any questions around changes to our packaging, or around organic food compliance more generally, please feel free to drop us a line and we would be happy to speak with you.
