Korean food companies to produce less spicy, ‘mild kimchi’ for Western tastebuds

  • South Korean food companies are setting up production of less spicy, “mild kimchi” in the U.S. and Europe.
  • Daesang Corp. has invested 20 billion won (approximately $16 million) into a factory located in Los Angeles that will have the potential to produce around 2,000 tons of mild kimchi annually.

Daesang Corp. recently invested 20 billion won (approximately $16 million) into building the first kimchi factory in the U.S. Located in Los Angeles, the kimchi factory is expected to produce around 2,000 tons of mild kimchi in 10 different variations annually, including vegan, beet and pickle radish. 

First kimchi factory in the US to open in Los Angeles

  • On Tuesday, Korean food company Daesang made history by opening the first kimchi factory in the U.S.
  • Kimchi, a traditional Korean dish of fermented cabbage that has been around for thousands of years, was originally made as a way to enjoy vegetables in the winters, when it was too cold to grow anything.
  • Located in Los Angeles, the kimchi production facility was launched to meet the growing demand for kimchi in Western countries.
  • With 20 billion won (approximately $16.4 million) invested in the production facility, which has the capacity to make up to 2,000 tons of kimchi per year, the company anticipates an annual sales amount of 100 billion won (approximately $82.0 million) by 2025.
  • Daesang will reportedly rely on American suppliers for the ingredients and will offer gluten-free and vegan kimchi options to better cater to locals.

Daesang, a Korean general food company, will make history by opening the first kimchi production facility in the U.S.

The company revealed on March 29 that it would launch a Kimchi facility in Los Angeles to expand its reach and meet growing demand for kimchi in Western countries. It is already responsible for over 40% of Korea’s total kimchi exports.
