About Us

Who is The Ugly Mug? 

We bring you Broth. Healthy healing Broth. Broth in a cup, a take home jar and if you find as at the weekend market then in soup too! 
The idea of taking Broth to the masses has been on our mind for the last few years but only in the last year we noticed just how difficult it is for some people to eat out. Our daughter was diagnosed with an insulin resistant condition that changed her dietary requirements drastically. While at the local markets, where we have had another business for the past 4 years, there was nothing for her to eat. This was the birth of adding soup to our idea of having a Broth Kitchen. In talking to our existing customers, it became apparent that many of them were facing the same problems.  
We have created recipes to cater for so many dietary requirements. We have broth to cater for paleo, low FODMAP, vegan and keto. If you have a special dietary need just let us know and we can direct you to the right broth. 
There are 5 broths available -Beef Bone Broth, Chicken Bone Broth, Dashi, Pork Bone Broth and Ramen Bone Broth.
