JONGGA’s preservation efforts for your
health and the planet

In the last century, 75% of plant biodiversity has been lost, with 95% of cabbage varieties disappearing from our plates. Jongga values cabbage – and other plants – to make its delicious kimchi, and as such, cares about preserving these nutritious vegetables so that they can be enjoyed by generations to come.  

Join Jongga’s Generation Preservation and help repopulate the planet with plant-forward food diversity for generations to come.

Jongga Kimchi is an authentic part of my Korean culture and packed with deep flavors and aromatics that make it a staple in my kitchen pantry. I stand with Jongga’s mission to maintain plant biodiversity, make sustainability delicious and preserve the health of our planet.
