Erica Dozier

Hello or 안녕하세요!

I’m Erica Dozer and I’m managing food allergies (shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts) in my daily life.  Actually, I’m one of four people in my family with a shellfish allergy.  

I created Korean Convenience after I returned from living in South Korea. I experienced firsthand what it’s like to walk into a convenience store and feel utterly helpless because I couldn’t read the product labels written in Hangul.  I tried doing simple translations and found how time-consuming and frustrating it’s to research multiple ingredients listed on one prepackaged food product.

I interviewed individuals in the allergy community, dietitians, and allergy specialist.  With their assistance, I created Korean Convenience a free mobile app to assist people with food allergies and food intolerances to find ready-made Korean food easier.

My goal is to help individuals find and discover prepackaged food products.  To shop, and eat like the locals with helpful cooking and related buying instructions  to use at your local convenience or grocery store.  Let’s face it, the world is tough enough going to buy to food shouldn’t be one of those obstacles.
