Japan Holiday Winner Announced!

Richard from Reading wins trip to Japan thanks to Yutaka Yutaka, the UK’s leading supplier of delicious Japanese ingredients, is delighted to announce that Richard Sharp from Wokingham in Reading has won a trip of lifetime to Japan.

Richard is a big fan of Japanese food and couldn’t believe his luck when he discovered that he’d won this amazing prize worth £2,000 just by buying his regular box of Miso soup at Sainsburys and logging the code.

Richard said: ‘Everyone says they’ve never won anything in their life before, and for me its certainly true. I was so amazed to win a trip to a Japan as this is a country I’ve wanted to visit for such a long time. Yutaka has introduced me to the flavour of Japan at home. I have enjoyed their products for a little while now. Especially their sushi ginger with my favourite sushi and the rich organic miso paste to make a fabulous soup’
