  • Our Suppliers

    “Imagine a world where children were fed tasty and nutritious, real food at school. A world where every child was educated about how amazing food is, where it comes from, how it affects the body, and how it can save their lives.”― Jamie Oliver

    Korai Hongo, Saitama​

    Jon Bales - Alishan supplies us with organic, healthy and sustainable ingredients from around the world.


    The owner Jack was surprised but mighty impressed that a school wanted to use their organic produce so he has given us a great deal on my bulk items

    Shiga Farm - Nagano

    Tomoko & Akira - Shiga farm is the first organic farm we worked with. There produce is amazing all the time, although they do not cover the ‘Organic Label’ but there practice is 100% organic creating their own fertiliser from locally grown rice husks.

    We get our delivery every Monday but if you would like to enjoy their amazing produce contact them directly to have a vegetable box delivered to your door.

    Miura, Kanagawa

    Kuba san - One of our suppliers who delivers fresh produce from the Miura peninsular co-operative of organic farmers.

    The quality of their vegetables and salads is first class but as you can imagine rather expensive. We can negotiate better prices with these cooperatives if we buy from them in large enough quantities.

    Which is why we need the support of the YIS community to eat with us at Dragon Dining.
