OUR STORY 


We are a family-owned artisanal spice and herbs company run by mother and daughter.  We both share a common goal: to honour our African heritage and make our ancestors proud. inspiring so many to create authentic dishes in the process is a bonus!

What started as a discussion over the kitchen table on Christmas Day 2017, Yems food has developed into a thriving small business that has never lost touch with its roots. We quickly realised that there was a huge appetite for our spice blends We've been humbled at how the public has taken our family and its values into their hearts.

Our heritage

Yems Food has at its foundation an abiding commitment to remaining true to our cultural heritage. Family, food and mealtimes play an integral part in our culture, bringing people together, and forging greater family bonds.

Traditional values

And we are proud to do things the old-fashioned way. Then we send them to customers and stockists around the UK every day. Our spices are loved by our customers, and we are often told that they have never smelt anything like them!

Over and over, our customers say that what sets us apart is our family values. They love that we are a mother and daughter team. The love and passion we have for food, and in particular the best quality ingredients, has created instant trust with everyone who buys from us.

Going above and beyond

On a day to day, operational basis, we are all about getting the detail right and genuinely providing the WOW factor to each person who buys our products. We include handwritten notes in our orders, together with free gifts that surprise and delight our customers over and over. As we continue to experience phenomenal growth, we vow never to lose this personal touch.
