Launched in 2014, Volcano Kimchi is a San Francisco-based producer of quality handmade kimchi. Locally sourced, non-GMO and organic ingredients are used to create a unique product that compliments almost any table.


I was born in South Korea, and grew up in a buddhist monastery where every meal included a variety of home-grown and locally-harvested vegetables, served in an array of vibrant and nutritious ways. I came to San Francisco in 2001, and while San Francisco is now home, the memory of those flavors is as fresh today as it was then. This is the guiding inspiration I use in preparing Volcano Kimchi.
