Our Values

FAIR PRICING

We at YS believe good quality should be rewarded. We promote quality premiums and rewards for improvements.

TRANSPARENCY

The first step in being accountable is being transparent. Our aim is to make people, practices, and pricing visible.

RELATIONSHIPS

YS is a container for building business relationships, not a traditional middleman. We hope to get you as close to origins as virtually possible.
