Where is your kimchi manufactured?
We produce all of our products in our kimchi factory in New York. Every batch of kimchi we produce is made the day you place your order, so you can rest assure that it is fresh. We are committed to cleanliness and responsible production in all of our products.

Should I keep kimchi refrigerated?
Keeping a jar of kimchi refrigerated slows the fermentation of kimchi, while leaving a jar of kimchi out in room temperature naturally speeds up the ripening process. If you would like your kimchi more ripe, we suggest leaving it out in room temperature until you find your desired taste.

What is the shelf life of K-Kimchi? How long will it last in the refrigerator?
The taste of kimchi will continue to change over time. The temperature and exposure to oxygen impact the flavor and fermentation of kimchi similar to wine or cheese. Our product is always made  fresh daily, so when it is delivered, it can be enjoyed for its fresh and vibrant flavors. Over time, kimchi will take on unique and distinct taste profiles of tangy notes while the spice mellows and develops into deeper characteristics. Generally, our kimchi will be delicious for up to 6 months and longer as long as you keep in the fridge.

Does your kimchi ever go bad?
Our kimchi continually ferments as it ages — so it never goes bad. Some people prefer the taste of unripened kimchi while others prefer ripe kimchi. It is all up to the individual based on their taste.
