Give yourself a Korea boost with kimchi

The Korean food staple, Kimchi, continues to grow in popularity with a 23% increase in exports to the UK last year.

In 2019, 886 tons of Kimchi products were exported to the UK, worth over £2.5 million. So far this year (January to September 2020) 656 tons have been imported, showing that Kimchi continues to tickle the tastebuds of discerning Brits.

Kimchi is a fermented food made using a variety of vegetables such as cabbage, radish and cucumber with a combination of seasoning including red pepper powder, garlic and ginger.

Available to purchase in a range of products, from fresh packets to store cupboard essentials and sauces, Kimchi is available in more retailers than ever before in the UK.

Although some other countries are also known to produce Kimchi, Korea is the product’s country of origin, which was officially recognised by the international standard for food (CODEX) in 2001.
