Call us crazy but we believe that delicious can be healthy. What??? People often ask how or why we started YUM and truth of the matter is, well, you always need a little fire to start something, right? We got a bit grumpy seeing the only options on the shelves being either tasty and ridiculously unhealthy, or, ridiculously healthy and taste-less. Thus, YUM was born. Delicious, healthy sustenance.
YUM is all made by hand, in small batches, with a whole lotta love, right here Nelson, New Zealand. We knew the only option that resonated with us from the beginning, was to use the best ingredients, which to us, means organic as it maximizes flavour and nutrients, while minimizing environmental impact. We also source them as close to us as possible. Our hazelnuts come from an amazing nut farm just over the hill in Blenheim, our honey comes from Nelson Honey, and their local bees, our coconut oil, while there are no coconuts in New Zealand, comes from a super thoughtful Christchurch company who look after their farmers and provide real trade prices as well as traceability for every batch.
We love how happy YUM makes people..and how excited it makes them for breakfast. And, what we can say, after making A LOT of granola, we still love it. Ultimately, it makes us real proud, knowing we are providing sustenance… delicious sustenance… to fuel mornings and adventures.
