Proudly made on Vancouver Island, Canada


We are two omnivores turned vegans and our plant-based journey started many years ago at a Buddhist vegan restaurant in South Korea. During the course of the meal, there were countless small dishes all with unique textures and flavours, and many shared a rich, savoury umami quality. It was amazing to us that it was all so delicious and 100% plant-based! 

As lifelong condiment hoarders and foodies, we wanted something that we could add to our vegan meals to make them as delicious and craveable as the food we had there. 

Umami Bomb was created through a process of (nearly) endless trial and error and the careful blending of aromatic spices, fermented bean paste, and shiitake mushrooms. Whether it's weeknight leftovers or a gourmet meal, a tablespoon or two of Umami Bomb adds a unique and irresistible quality to any dish. Our customers (both vegan and non) tell us that it’s so tasty and addictive they put that shiitake on everything!
