The katana on the bottle reads "Kim Chee" so I am not sure what company produces this base, but I think my mom picked it up from Marukai or Don Quixote back home.
I think that this sauce produces pretty good kim chee. This is my extent of kim chee making. (Yes, I am part Korean and do not know the first thing about making kim chee). Mike is not a big fan of the flavor and said that there's a strong fishy taste to it. I think it tastes pretty good for a "ready to use" (cheat) sauce and would purchase it for that quick Korean food fix.
