The Umamicart Supplier Network
Umamicart currently works with 100+ suppliers to offer thousands of well-curated products and ingredients used across Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Filipino and many other Southeast Asian cuisines. We are proud to support a mix of local distributors and small businesses, particularly those that are female-led, immigrant-led, and Asian-owned.
Many of the traditional mom-and-pop Asian suppliers that we work with don’t have an online channel to reach consumers. We've been able to partner with these suppliers to bring their products to a wider audience, outside of traditional brick and mortar stores.
We’ve also been able to work with a variety of newly launched brands as we are always on the lookout for great products by AAPI founders, local vendors, and mom and pop stores. As a fellow small business, we love helping other newer companies grow by providing them with a platform to be discovered by consumers like you!
From day one, we built Umamicart with the mission to support these incredibly hardworking people throughout the supply chain. We’re proud to work closely with these local suppliers and producers to source the majority of our products.
How we select our Suppliers and Products
Our small team of hungry foodies handpicks and tests every product that we carry to ensure that we bring you the best of Asian groceries. (PS: Subscribe to our email to get our team’s picks every Sunday!). Like you, we love trying new flavors and supporting new entrepreneurs. We aim to bring you all the traditional flavors and the latest trends in Asian flavors.
Our focus areas:
Female Strong: 72% of small brands on our site are female founded. As a women-led business, we are fortunate to be able to forge relationships with so many incredible female food founders and celebrate one another!
Young & Innovative Brands: Many smaller, minority brands often lack the platform to launch their amazing products. We’re proud that 40%+ of our brands were founded in just the last 5 years! Check out our Umamicart Exclusives collection for the latest up and coming brands.
NYC Proud: Our company is based right here in Brooklyn, and we’re committed to using our channels to amplify the incredible products made right here in New York City. Over 50% of our suppliers are based in NYC! Check out brands like 46 Mott Bakery, Twin Marquis, Nyrture Natto, and more.
Freshest Asian Produce: Our expert buying team sources the freshest produce from our network of suppliers, optimizing for local sources where available. We're proud to work with Allwell Greens (Asian greens indoor farm), Bowery Farming (indoor farm growing salad greens), and Suzuki Farms (the only Japanese vegetable producer on the east coast).
Growing with You: As a small company, our team reads every single message that you send us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We take every product suggestion seriously (and seriously, they are the best suggestions). Our catalog continues to grow and evolve with you, our community!
