With farms in Hampshire and Dorset, The Wasabi Company is the only grower of wasabi in the UK. The plants are grown in (disused) Victorian watercress beds to mimic the Japanese mountainside, their native environment.
The Wasabi Company cultivates tens of thousands of wasabi plants, yielding up to 2 tons of wasabi a year. Everything is done by hand from the planting and harvesting of the plants, to the preparation of the rhizomes for their customers. The plants take two years to mature so it’s been a long journey, learning about the foibles of the plant as they’ve gone along, but it’s been worth it, and they now supply many of the UK’s top restaurants including Umu, Ynyshir Hall, Gordon Ramsay and The Raby Hunt.
As well as growing fresh wasabi, The Wasabi Company also sells an extensive range of Japanese products from small artisanal producers and makes a range of Wasabi Company own-label products including the only mustard and mayonnaise containing fresh wasabi, a wasabi vodka and various products that feature the classic Japanese citrus fruit Yuzu, many of which have been awarded Great Taste Awards.
All the products can be viewed and bought from thewasabicompany.co.uk
Although fresh English wasabi remains the beating heart of The Wasabi Company, product expansion has been, and is, customer led as top chefs have asked for ever more specialist Japanese products to accompany their fresh wasabi orders.
This has resulted in The Wasabi Company developing an exciting and unique portfolio of specialist ingredients and products, many of which are exclusive to the UK. They work with a number of small, artisanal Japanese producers to supply top quality soy sauces, vinegars, sakes, miso and noodles to name but a few of the products on offer.
The Wasabi Company has also launched its own-label range of condiments and sauces including English wasabi mayonnaise, English wasabi mustard, Yuzu mayonnaise & Yuzu mustard. Using all-natural ingredients these products are fresh tasting with perfectly balanced flavours and packed with citrus and umami, the very essence of Japanese cuisine. Originally aimed at the retail market, these are now also available to the HORECA sector.
