Kings County Importing Co.
Hello! We're KCI, intrepid importers of exceptional foods from France and beyond.
We'd love to hear from you! Get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We're an importer of exceptional food products from France and beyond under the H. Eckford brand. Our company strives to seek out the very best products that can be found anywhere in the world and bring them back to New York’s discerning customers.
Our original line of monofloral honey varieties from Provence and Rhône-Alpes, France came by kismet when an encounter with friends visiting the US from their native France arrived at the subject of the incredible honey produced by a family friend. Once we had the chance to try it for ourselves we knew we had found something truly special – and we made our first order.
We’re based in Greenpoint, Brooklyn on Eckford Street, whose namesake was also the inspiration for the H. Eckford brand. Henry Eckford, the noted 19th century shipbuilder, trader, and explorer was known, among other accomplishments, for designing and building the fastest ship ever to sail from New York to Calcutta, India – a record that would remain unbroken for 40 years.
