Press release   •   Jun 17, 2015 10:28 BST

Yumie Sushi, the makers of traditional hand finished sushi have been finding out who in the UK loves their sushi and who is frankly left cold

Middlesex is the least sushi keen county with Lancashire coming a close second.Not surprisingly cosmopolitan Londoners are the biggest fans closely followed by Hertfordshire which has other claims to fame including home to over 8.5 million people *and has around 78 thousand taxis!!

Time to prove the figures wrong…. It’s the famous (yes really)International Sushi Day on Thursday June 18th. Never heard of it? Well around the world, everyone will be gearing up to enjoy their sushi including sushi get-togethers to make and eat lots of different Sushi recipes experimenting with making adorable Sushi characters such as pandas and sushi flowers.

The first ever International Sushi Day had a participation of just over 21,000 people* and although relatively new, this celebration is catching on quickly all over the world.Follow on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/pages/International-Sushi-Day/

- Yumie Sushi is a fun and exciting new brand, using authentic Japanese production methods. The delicious recipes which are all under 204 calories offer both fish and vegetarian options to stand out alongside sandwiches and salads - but don’t worry no raw fish!

- Yumie is designed by the Sushi Chef Yumie Hurrell-Kanamoto who heads up the brand. Yumie was born and raised in Japan and comes from a long line of rice farmers. Her family still farm their own paddy fields where they grow outstanding sushi rice.

- For National Sushi Day, they are looking forward to celebrating with the highly antipicated ‘Stories With Yumie’. These are a series of short videos where Yumie herself tells everyone interesting facts of her life in Japan. The videos can be found on their Yumie Sushi Facebook page or @YumieSushi on Twitter. Keep your eyes peeled for a special International Sushi Day edition.
