REDWOOD CITY, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/15/14 -- People in the U.K. can now sharpen their cooking skills with Yummly, (http://www.yummly.com), the leading digital kitchen and recipe discovery platform. Today, the food technology company announced its robust recipe tool will be available in the U.K., via web and an iOS app. This is the first step in Yummly's path to create a global index for food and ingredients, marking the company's entrance into the international market and extending its audience beyond the more than 15 million monthly unique visitors in the U.S.
"Yummly already has incredible traction in the U.S. market and expansion into the U.K. aligns with our mission to make Yummly the ultimate global search and discovery tool for recipes," said Kate Holmes, head of international at Yummly.

The Yummly U.K. site will include local recipe sources, imperial units of measure and provide U.K.-specific ads from the top food brands.
Further research on the U.K. market influenced product decisions. To delight U.K. taste buds, Yummly created browse categories, enhanced search filters, like 'Mexican' and 'Sunday Lunch', and tailored recipe sources, based on U.K. users affinity for spicy foods and group dinners on the weekends. Additionally, Yummly optimized its iOS app, due to the high mobile penetration in the U.K.
For consumers, they will have access to more than one million unique and U.K.-specific recipes that can be filtered by nutrition, season, and taste preference from the top food sites as well as niche blogs. They will also have access to recipes from the top food brands they know and love, like Knorr and Bertolli.
