Misc. Questions

How soon will I receive my package? 1-3 days from date the label is created with selected carrier service.

How do you source? With our mission to improve people’s health by providing premium Korean foods, Kim’C Market only offers the best quality food from the finest producers in Korea.  All of our offerings have passed 12 internal criteria including taste, producer’s reputation, sourcing of ingredients, and brand philosophy.

Best before date. Every food product at Kim'C Market with less than 3 months to the best before dates announce the date in the title page.

As a small company focusing on the best customer experience and transparency, Kim'C Market is putting a weight on sharing information on food and correcting myths instead of asking producers to print later dates. (Fact: producers put a lot shorter dates than the lab tests suggest because they can't control the storage and distribution.) For example, best before date doesn't mean the food is bad after the date or not edible. It especially doesn't reply to fermented foods - i.e. wouldn't you value aged kimchi or 5 years fermented doenjang? Please read our blog: Understanding Best-By Dates. We will continue to make efforts to educate our members and contribute to anti-global warming efforts.

I'd like to suggest some products. Whom should I contact? We are open to any suggestions as we want to make the best available for our customers. Please contact us using our  Contact Form for your recommendations and a representative will follow up.

Can you ensure that my credit card information is safe and not shared? Kim'C Market can't see nor store your credit card information. Like so many other merchants, we rely on payment gateway systems. 

Can I order Hanwoo beef and have it delivered to me in the US?
Due to agriculture/livestock restrictions, Hanwoo deliveries are for within Korea only. We're hopeful for the opportunity to provide delicious Hanwoo beef in the US in the future.
