Japan Is Likely to Import More Health Food & Readyto-Eat Food from Korea

Promising Food Products for Export

T

he final tally of Korean food exports last year amounted to US$9.2 billion, up by 6.5% from 2016. It was the largest export amount ever achieved by Korea and all the more remarkable

given the unfavorable conditions such as the Chinese reaction to the deployment of THAAD and an

outbreak of avian flu at home. With the first US$1 million in exports just around the corner, 2018 looks even more promising. To surpass the record of last year, however, Korea needs to reduce its reliance on exports of ramyeon (instant noodles), beverages, and tuna and increase the ratio of other types of products. Particularly urgent is the promotion of export of fresh farm products, which is directly related to the increasing of farmers’ incomes. In this light, Korea Agrafood, with assistance of the overseas offices of aT, has selected food products that have the biggest potential in overseas markets in 2018.

4 Korea Agrafood

This year’s keywords for export of Korean food to Japan, the largest importer of Korean food, are “health” and “convenience.” Products with healthy image and ready-to-eat foods are expected to attract consumer attention. Head of the Korea Agro-Trade Center in Tokyo, Kim Ho-dong, said, “In Japan, with its aging population and an increase in the number of working couples, health and convenience are settling as trends in consumption across generations.” At the top of the list of promising health foods is ginseng. Last year, Korea Agro-Trade Center in Tokyo partnered with Alpressa Healthcare, the largest health food vendor in Japan, to promote the sales and bring nationwide publicity to Korean ginseng through 377 stores in nine drugstore chains the vendor operates. The promotion revealed the Japanese interest in ginseng beverages, red ginseng tea, and other ginseng products. Samgyetang (ginseng chicken soup), jujube beverages, and fruit vinegar beverages also have good potential. Last year, a chicken salad introduced in 7-Eleven stores gained wide popularity, and this

attract consumers as both jujubes and vinegar are well-known health foods. Tteokbokki (stir-fried spicy rice cake) and juk (Korean porridge) stand out in the ready-to-eat food category. Frequently described as the most sought-after food of Japanese tourists in Korea, tteokbokki is now available in the Japanese market in different types including those very easy to cook and customized to the Japanese

year, sales of samgyetang made with chicken breast are likely to grow. Jujube drinks and fruit vinegar beverages are also expected to

Meeting the Demand of the Expanding Chinese Market with Shine Muscat Grape, Seaweed, and Other Farm Products

Shine Muscat grape

In the Chinese market, exports of fresh farm products can be expected to leap forward. For example, since it was first exported to China last year, Shine Muscat grape has been steadily attracting fruit buyers, and its sales are likely to expand this year. “Shine Muscat grape is the first fruit we exported to China. Its strengths include rich pulp, crispiness, and a relatively thin skin, so it can be eaten with its skin on,” said Seo Byung-kyo, Head of the Korea Agro-Trade Center in Beijing. Another promising product is dried seaweed. The popularity of Korean seaweed in China is growing as attested by the fact that last year’s export volume reached US$ 88.9 million dollars, 30% up from 2016. Head of the Korea AgroTrade Center in Shanghai, Lee Sang-kil, said, “Dried seaweed is unrivaled in its sales power overseas. It is the most popular Korean product in the snack sections of supermarkets.” He added, “We now export, along with seasoned sea-

Seaweed

weed, seaweed used for processed food and sushi, so there is a good chance seaweed sales will be even greater this year.” Export growth is also expected for processed rice products and ramyeon. The baby food market is estimated to increase greatly due to the change in the Chinese government’s population policy which now allows families to have two children. In this context, Korean producers can expand their sales if they offer rice-based baby food and rice snacks for children, customized to the Chinese market. The export of Korean ramyeon is rising on the wings of its fame as extremely spicy and highly addictive, which is spread through social media. Its last year’s sales volume surpassed the US$100 million mark. Seo explained, “Ramen exports are continuously growing due to the popularity among Chinese youth of trying different ramyeon flavors and different recipes.”

st a e th u o S ia As New Types of Products to Advance to Southeast Asia With sales of Korean food products amounting to US$1.6 billion last year, Southeast Asia is a market of opportunity for various Korean products. The combination of high sugar content with premium quality will likely attract even more Vietnamese consumers to Korean Shine Muscat grapes. Also, given the high birth rate in Vietnam and concern about safety of baby food among Vietnamese parents, experts predict a rise in popularity of Korean products which have a premium, high-quality food image. Recording skyrocketing sales of ramyeon and Korean strawberries, Thailand has emerged as the second largest importer of Korean food among the ASEAN countries. It is expected that the demand for the two types of products will continue this year. The healthy lifestyle promotion policies of the Thai government, such as the introduction of a sugar tax, is a good opportunity for Korean nut products, semi-dried sweet potatoes, and other healthy snacks. The Director of the aT office in Bangkok, Yang Jae-seong, said, “Based on the successful test sales of healthy Korean snacks in Thailand last year, we believe that with promotional activities, such snacks will sell well.”

Red pepper paste is a promising item in Indonesia. As import quotas no longer apply to red pepper, the barriers to its import have been removed, and now the product can be exported to the country all year round. Considering that the popularity of Korean food in Jakarta is very high (about 200 Korean restaurants operate in the capital), the sales of red pepper paste are likely to grow. Singapore is expected to import more sweet pumpkins and green pumpkins from Korea. Sweet pumpkin is a common ingredient in the Singaporean cuisine, and sweet pumpkin from Korea tops the list of most popular fresh Korean products in local supermarkets. With its excellent taste, green pumpkin may win the hearts of Singaporean consumers if its sales are promoted through free sampling events of pumpkin fries and other pumpkin dishes.

American Consumers Look Forward to Healthy Food from Korea

The interest in healthy food in the US is continuing, and it is expected that more consumers will turn their attention to healthy Korean products such as samgyetang and red pepper paste. The awareness about samgyetang, which has built an image of high-end food, is expanding, leading to an increasing consumption of samgyetang products by the ethnic Chinese and Vietnamese. As a result, the sales volume of samgyetang products, which were first introduced in the American market in 2014, recorded US$3.6 million last year. Given the diversification of related products, such as the entry of samgye-juk (samgyetang porridge), the market share is likely to expand further. Health-conscious American consumers are also showing interest in gluten-free red pepper paste, which shows good prospects for that type of product. Kim Kwang-jin, the head of

the aT office in New York, suggested, “If we utilize the interest of Americans in gluten-free red pepper paste in our marketing, we will be able to build up the paste’s reputation as a healthy, high-quality food ingredient and expand the market accordingly.” In addition, Buldak-Bokkeum-Myeon (instant noodles with hot fried chicken) has attracted great attention as a “food challenge” through Youtube. Not only that product but similar products of other companies are also flying off the shelves, securing a new consumer base. Yi Chu-pyo, the head of aT branch in LA, forecasts, “Since the speed of entry into the American market of products that are hits in Korea is increasing, the consumption of Korean ramyeon among Asian consumers in the US is going to grow further.”

EU

Expecting a Competition by Korean Products for a Share in the European Health Food Market

Due to the interest of Europeans in ethnic and health foods, exports of Korean king oyster mushrooms last year rose by 12%. Local consumers praise Korean king oyster mushrooms for excellent texture and flavor. The demand for kimchi is growing thanks to its healthy image as a fermented food. The kimchi exports in 2017 reached US$6.24 million, which is a 26% increase compared to the previous year. Similarly, Korean sauces benefit from being fermented foods and contribute to the raising of interest in Korean food products and sales in general. European consumers demonstrate positive responses not only to traditional sauces such as gochujang (red pepper

paste), doenjang (soybean paste), and ganjang (soy sauce) but also their modern counterparts―ssamjang (a combination of bean paste, red pepper paste, and other seasonings), chogochujang (red pepper paste with vinegar), and others.

visit parents, playing traditional games such as yut, and eating tteokguk (rice cake soup) and other festive foods associated with the holiday. In China, Lunar New Year is called Chun Jié, which stands for “ring out the old year and ringing in the new.” In both countries, people visit relatives and acquaintances, wish them good fortune, and exchange gifts. With their luxurious and healthy image, Korean food products such as red ginseng and traditional liquor make excellent gifts for Chun Jié. Below is a list of products Korea Agrafood would like to recommend to our readers.

Tips for Korean Exporters _ 爲韓攻出口企業建言

!

The presidents of aT branches in China advise that to establish Korean food products as Chun Jié gifts, Korean exporters should conduct extensive market research, differentiate their products, build a luxurious image, and be particularly attentive to the composition of products. Seo Byung-kyo, President of the Beijing branch, said, “Exporters can improve their chances to succeed if they carefully check whether the ingredients of the goods they plan to export are allowed to be imported in China. In addition, it is important to conduct surveys of popular Chinese supermarkets before you start exports, in order to identify the right target customer. In regards to packaging, exporters can raise the competitive edge of their products by offering them in refined packaging having a premium image.” Lee Sang-kil, President of the Shanghai branch, emphasized the importance of creating a luxurious and clean image through packaging. He said, “You may want to use red and gold colors that Chinese consumers particularly like.” Lee Jong-geun, President of the Chengdu branch, pointed out

16 Korea Agrafood

that gifts should have abundant contents rather than excessive packaging. Lee Ji-jae, President of the Hong Kong branch, said, “Many Chinese consumers would prefer products that have a special packaging and include a free gift for Chun Jié.”

中攻內的韓攻農水産食品流通公社 分公司社長們都認爲,韓攻農食品 要占据中攻春節饑品市場的一席之地, 需要捲市場進行充分的調査,樹立産品 的憾性化及高圭化形象,使産品的構成 更加充麟? (aT)

北京分公司徐幷敎社長强調道,“要 捲出口産品的成分是否爲中攻食品許 可的成分進行仔細的調査后出口産品 方能癎少執行錯誤?此外,在産品出 口之前到中攻的各大連鎖店進行現場 考察,這捲目標消費群郞的確定十分 重要?在包裝層面上,有必要突出優 質高圭的形象,以精美的包裝提高産 品的競爭力”? 上海分公司李相吉社長也說明道, “一定要用憾性化及高圭化的精美包裝 領先中攻的産品?最好是多選楊利用中 攻消費者喜歡的紅色和黃色”?

Since the Chinese purchase Chun Jié gifts both online and offline, exporters should target both types of stores. Representative online malls in China include Jingdong (www.jd.com) and Tmall (www.tmall.com). There are also mobile messengers that promote and sell products, such as Weixin and Weibo. When shopping for food gifts offline, many Chinese consumers use OLE supermarket chain and other high-end distributors.

成都分公司李鐘根社長則認爲,“相 比過度的包裝,充麟的産品構成更重 要”?香港分公司李智宰社長預計,“高 圭包裝繇成爲主要勒点?而且,配有春 節特惠套裝包?春節特惠饋贈品等的産 品將繇暢銷”? 充分利用網購店及麟郞店等中攻消費 者購買春節饑物的主要渠道也蜈重要? 最典型的網上購物店有京東 (www.jd.com)和天猫(www.tmall. com)?利用移動聊天工具?微信及微 博等進行商品宣傳和銷魔的“微商”也是 購買方式之一?在全攻已形成網絡覆盖 的OLE精品超市等大型商場也是中攻消 費者購買農食品常去的地方?

Getting to Know the Taste of Jeju with

Satsuma & Hallabong

To keep the number of spoiled fruit to a minimum, Farming Cooperative Jeju Citrus Village pays close attention when selecting farms for the production of satsumas and Hallabong for export.

eju Island, one of the sites on the UNESCO list of World Natural Heritage, is a famous tourist destination in Korea. Even in the middle of the winter, many people visit to enjoy views of Halla Mountain covered with snow and to enjoy Jeju specialty fruit, satsuma and Hallabong. Koreans love citruses from Jeju because they have a sweet-and-sour taste and can be easily peeled by hand. February is the best time to taste these fruit because it is the peak of the harvesting season. If you cannot visit Jeju this month, do not get discouraged. Jeju citruses are available in other countries, too. Many farmers and exporting companies on the island offer satsumas and Hallabong oranges in the international market, so you can see these fruit in stores of Canada, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, the US, and other places. One of the largest exporters of citruses from Jeju is the Farming Cooperative Jeju Citrus Village.

Won the Hearts of Korean Consumers and Overseas Buyers with Thoroughly Selected Fruit and Excellent Customer Service The Farming Cooperative Jeju Citrus Village is located in Bomok-dong of Seogwipo City. It was established in 2005 and started exporting citruses in 2009. Even though the cooperative entered the export business relatively late, it is rapidly increasing its overseas sales volume with the help of knowhow accumulated in the domestic market. Heo Min-cheol, CEO of Jeju Citrus Village, said, “This cooperative is a robust company with annual sales of US$1 million. We are among the two largest handlers of fresh food in Jeju.” He added, “We have been able to grow so much because we have earned consumer trust through a direct transaction system where we meticulously select the produce we ship and offer 100% refunds even in the case of minor claims.” When shipping fruit abroad, the transportation period is longer and the consumers are less familiar with Jeju citruses, so to be competitive in foreign markets, the cooperative applies these principles to overseas sales even more rigorously.

Great effort is invested in quality control at the cultivation stage. Kim Dong-hyun, a manager of Jeju Citrus Village, explained, “Only the fruit that pass the primary inspections at the farms―such as the inspections for residual pesticides, pests, and damages―can enter the cooperative facility. They are then checked again, and those that are too sour or have a low sugar content are removed.” The citruses go through an automated line equipped with a non-destructive sugar meter. Kim is confident that since the fruit are inspected three times visually and using tools, all citruses that do not meet standards in terms of size, appearance, and sugar content are sorted out. Direct export is another factor in the cooperative’s international competitiveness. By removing the intermediary, Jeju Citrus Village is able to offer premium satsumas and Hallabong to foreign buyers at reasonable prices. Moreover, the cooperative is able to quickly resolve any problems arising during the exporting process. Heo said with pride, “We take even small complaints from buyers very seriously. We often meet buyers in person in order to find a solution. Buyers praise us for providing wholehearted service even in replies to minor issues raised by email.”

Skyrocketing Export Performance As buyers’ trust has rapidly grown, so did the export volume of Jeju Citrus Village. It has increased five times from US$93,500 in 2016 to US$468,000 in 2017. This year, the cooperative aims to export US$940,000 worth of fruit. Heo said, “We are receiving positive reviews from buyers and an increasing number of requests from different countries. Buyers from Taiwan and Hong Kong, are major markets, are steadily placing orders, and negotiations with buyers from Mongolia are underway.” He added, “We are interested both in increasing exports to existing markets and in exploring new ones.” In addition, the cooperative has plans to start exporting other citrus varieties, such as Cheonhyehyang and Red Hyang satsumas.

Farming Cooperative Jeju Citrus Village carries out a comprehensive evaluation of farms based on several criteria: a strong will to export the product, humidity of the satsuma or hallabong orchard, location, quality of the products, ability to meet the quarantine conditions, and so on.

Fresh Food Kiwi

R e d Gold Green Three Colors,

Kiwi

Three Merits Hallagold Farming Guild Corporation grows delicious red, gold, and green kiwi (left to right) for export.

iwi contains three times the amount of fiber than in an apple. The fruit has a low GI (glycemic index), which means it is effective in weight control because it helps the body to consume fat, preventing its accumulation. That is why kiwi is so popular with dieters. Furthermore, it abounds with vitamins C and E and minerals such as potassium, calcium, and phosphorus. The country most people associate with producing kiwi is New Zealand. Recently however, a Korean island known for its clean natural environment, Jeju-do is emerging as a major supplier of kiwi. Half of all kiwi cultivated in Korea comes from Jeju island. Behind the success of the island in kiwi cultivation is the Hallagold Farming Guild Corporation.

K

Solid Basis for Cultivating High-Quality Fruit Hallagold Farming Guild Corporation (hereafter, Hallagold Farming) was created in 2008 by nine farming households. Other farmers have joined, attracted by the opportunity to carry out the selection and shipment of fruit all together, and currently the corporation has 220 members. Ko Bong-ju, CEO of Hallagold Farming, said, “Soon after the corporation was established, we obtained exclusive rights to cultivate kiwi varieties developed by RDA (Rural Development Administration), and this helped to stabilize our business.” Hallagold Farming and RDA signed agree-

ments for exclusive use of Hallagold kiwi and Sweet Gold kiwi varieties by Hallagold Farming in 2010 and 2014 respectively. Armed with these agreements, Hallagold Farming has built strong foundations for the cultivation of high-quality fruit. The corporation carries out training at advanced farming sites in New Zealand, conducts regular educational sessions in Korea, and encourages the exchanges of technical information among farmers and the upgrading of their cultivation techniques. In 2014, the corporation registered with NAQS (National Agricultural Products Quality Management Service) and started implementing pre-harvest tests for residual pesticides. The harvested fruit is screened and packed in a distribution center built in 2012. The construction of a pollen production center was completed in 2013. Ko stated, “We conduct farmer training to ensure that kiwi they produce meets the requirements for screening and quality management. We have created residual pesticide standard tables for Korea and the countries kiwi is exported to and distributed these tables to farmers.” He added, “The distribution and pollen production centers have provided a basis to help farmers stay focused on stable production of kiwi. It is thanks to our production and distribution systems that we are able to offer high-quality kiwi to the market.” The kiwi produced by Hallagold Farming is highly recog-

nized in Korea for its excellent quality. It received the Excellent Variety Award and the Bronze Award in Best Farm Product Fair in 2010. Hallagold Farming was designated by NAQs as an excellent farm product management facility and received a certificate of excellent farm product management from Jeju National University in 2014.

Marketing Strategies Customized by the Market With the infrastructure for producing a sufficient amount of high-quality kiwis, Hallagold Farming set its sights on international markets. It made its first shipment abroad to Singapore in October 2015 and now exports the fruit to Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Japan. To Southeast Asia, the corporation mainly supplies gold and red kiwi, as local consumers there prefer kiwis with high sugar content and less tartness. In contrast, green kiwi is shipped to Japan where consumers enjoy a sweet-andsour taste. Ko said with confidence, “In Southeast Asia, our products beat Zespri’s. At 18 Brix, our red kiwi is very sweet.” Hallagold Farming is planning to expand its sales abroad of Halla Sweet, a strategic variety developed by RDA specifically for export. Ko said, “Free from the pungent taste peculiar to kiwi and having a good texture, Halla Sweet will attract even more consumers. The export volume of the corporation last year was 235 tons, and this year, we aim to increase it to 480 tons.” Ko revealed that in addition to the existing markets, Hallagold Farming will try to enter India and other countries. He said, “I think excellent quality is the key to competing in the international market. I hope that one day Hallagold will become the world’s top brand of kiwi.”

Wefarmer Gears up to Enter the World Market

やわらかく?香りのよい韓國· 河東のニラ?日本市場で大人氣 co-friendly Asian chives from Hadong, which are effective in strengthening the body and keeping it warm, are in the spotlight in Japan. At the end of last year, Wefarmer Co., Ltd. exported Asian chives to Osaka to be used as ramen garnish, and the vegetable received rave reviews, opening the way for continuous exports.

E

First Export of High-Quality Hadong Chives Wefaramer was established in 2016 by 27 farmers cultivating chives in Hadong, for the purpose of exporting the vegetable to overseas markets. Offered under the joint brand “Ttangsaemi,” the company’s chives are considered to be in the top 1-2% in terms of quality at Seoul Garak Market, the largest agro-fishery market in Korea. Jang Ho-bong, a director of Wefarmer, said, “The reason why Hadong chives have been able to earn such a good reputation in Japan is because they are grown at the foot of Jiri Mountain, an area with pristine water and clean air. In addition, our chives are aromatic and soft because we use organic farming methods and manage the soil so it is optimal for the cultivation of chives.” In general, Hadong chives are considered excellent in taste and quality and are sold at 20% higher prices than

Building a Premium Chives Image through Exports to Japan Last December, Wefarmer exported six tons of Asian chives to KAMUKURA, one of the top three ramen restaurants in Osaka, where the vegetable was used to garnish dishes. Following favorable reviews from the restaurant customers, Wefarmer received additional orders. This year, the company expects to ship about 40 tons of chives to Japan. Thanks to their high quality, Hadong chives were able to pass pesticide residue tests and other rigorous inspections conducted by Japanese customs. According to Japanese sources, Wefarmer’s chives made a better accompaniment to ramen than locally produced vegetables. Jang said, “I believe our chives will have a great appeal to Japanese consumers. Their pesticide level is less than 1/20 of the Japanese import inspection and quarantine standards.

Hadong chives have a nickname of “liver vegetable” because they are considered effective in increasing physical strength and improving liver function. They are also known to clean the intestines and keep the stomach healthy. Chive juice has been traditionally used in Korea to treat burns and is thought to be good for treating diabetes, hemorrhoids, and intoxication. As the awareness of the health benefits of Hadong chives is rising, the vegetable is attracting greater attention of domestic and foreign buyers. Capitalizing on this popularity, Wefarmer is planning to expand its exports in the long term to China, Southeast Asia, and other markets. Jang said, “The weather conditions this year are good, so we are likely to have a large production volume. We hope to gradually increase exports to Japan, and when the export price stabilizes, it will help raise the incomes of Hadong farmers and have other positive effects.” He added, “We will promote the strengths of Hadong chives through consultations with foreign buyers and do our best to expand exports.”

hat shall I eat?” Though seems like a simple question, there are many variables that often make it a time-consuming endeavor. We often need to choose among many dishes based on the caloric value, nutrition, and taste. Once we have decided what to eat, it will take more time and effort to get the ingredients, cook, serve, and eat the dish, and clean afterwards. Of course, you can eat in a restaurant or have a meal delivered but there is still waiting time. Furthermore, such meals hardly offer perfect nutrition. Some of them have too many calories; others contain an excessive amount of sodium or artificial seasonings. It is not an exaggeration to say busy modern people consume their personal time and nutritional imbalance along with a meal. Food substitute products that can resolve this problem are in the spotlight these days. One of such products is Grain Powder Mix produced by agricultural export corporation Design Nongboo.

An Ambitious Young Farmer Realizes His Dream Design Nongboo, located in Jeonju of North Jeolla Province, was started in 2011 by an ambitious young farmer who wanted to lead the transformation of Korean agriculture. When Kim Yo-sum took over a family farm cultivating various kinds of grains including rice, green kernel black beans, and small peas, he realized that things had to be changed. Kim recalls, “Even though the online food market was rapidly expanding due to the increasing number of single households, no rice or other grain products were available to match this trend. That is why I decided to establish Design Nongboo and develop small-sized rice and grain products for sales online.” Thanks to Kim’s ability to read market trends well, his company soon became a stable business. However, the young farmer did not want to settle down yet. He caught another trend―convenience food― and started developing

suming necessary daily nutrition is as convenient as making instant cocoa from a pouch. Another advantage of the product is that it uses only safe grains produced in Korea, such as barley, brown rice, glutinous rice, black beans, black rice, white beans, sorghum, and black sesame seeds. In fact, 80% of the ingredients are procured through cultivation agreements with thirty farms in North Jeolla Province, and the rest are purchased through the nationwide organization of agricultural cooperatives, Nonghyup. Kim said, “We go beyond simply replacing a meal; we try to satisfy health needs.”

Design Nongboo’s products receive a particularly favorable reception from young business women. They enjoy being able to have a healthy meal and like that the packaging has a sophisticated design with beautiful colors. Recently, the company developed a new product using red beans which are considered effective in dieting. It targets those who make time in their busy schedules to exercise with the objective of losing weight but cannot have meals at appropriate times. The product allows such people to have a nutritious meal good for the diet and convenient to make.

Welcomed by Dieters in the US and Southeast Asia Design Nongboo turned its attention to the international market just two years ago, in 2016. Its main

market is the US, the world’s largest market for protein powder and other healthy shakes. Kim said proudly, “I participated in an overseas expo for the first time in 2016, and American buyers immediately showed a lot of interest in Design Nongboo’s products. I was told they are healthier and taste better than many other healthy shakes.” The company shipped US$65 million worth of products to the US in the second half of 2017. Early this year, Kim signed an MOU with a Vietnamese health food company and is preparing the first shipment to Vietnam. Kim said, “We have just entered the international market, and we have already received so much attention. We will analyze local market trends and apply our findings to the products in order to expand the exports.”

aving decorated the dining table of the kings of Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910), hangwa is a type of traditional Korean cookie. It is used, along with tteok (rice cake), for ancestral rites and served to guests at weddings and banquets. As hangwa is made of cereal and honey with pine nuts, sesame, walnuts, chestnuts, or jujubes, it is abundant in nutrition. Furthermore, it boasts excellent storability, remaining fresh for a long time without preservatives. Accompanying her husband to the APEC Summit in South Korea in July 2015, the Chinese First Lady, Peng Liyuan, demonstrated her affection for hangwa by pur-

Damyang Hangwa Damyang Hangwa is the brand of hangwa Peng Liyuan purchased. Located in Damyang of South Jeolla Province, it is a brand of high-end cookie whose flavor, shape, and colors are fashioned by food artisan Park Sun-ae.

Tammi Jeong Hangwa Located in Pocheon of Gyeonggi Province, Tammi Jeong Hangwa is a company making hangwa with eco-friendly ingredients and uses only natural additives. The cookies are fried in rapeseed oil, which is more expensive than other oils, and the oil is never reused. In 2011, the company became the first hangwa maker to receive the HACCP certification. It acquired quality certification ISO 22000 in 2008. The credo of Tammi Jeong Hangwa is to offer consumers safe and high-quality hangwa.

Anbokja Hangwa Anbokja Hangwa, another producer of traditional hangwa, has earned consumer trust by using a trademark which shows a picture of the company’s president, An Bok-ja.

Hansik & Hallyu _ Tteok-galbi

Jang Seo-hee Recommends ⓒtvN

Tteok-galbi on TV In tvN program Seoul Mate, actress Jang Seohee took a Dutch family of six to the Ikseondong area in downtown Seoul. They strolled around the area, tried on Korean traditional clothes, and sampled various Korean cuisine dishes. Jang introduced the visitors to tteok-galbi, and all of them immediately fell in love with the dish, repeatedly saying, “This is so delicious.”

Tteok-galbi teok-galbi (grilled short rib patty) is part of Korean haute cuisine. In old times, it was served in royal palace to the table of the king. Literally translated as “rice cake ribs,” the dish is named so because chopped beef is formed into a shape similar to that of a rice cake. It is thought that tteok-galbi allowed the king to enjoy eating ribs without breaking decorum, since he did not have to hold the ribs by hand. Savory and convenient-to-eat, tteok-galbi is popular among Koreans regardless of age or gender. Many foreigners also like the dish, praising it for the sweet-and-salty flavor, juiciness, and soft texture.

Seaweed A Lucrative Agriproduct Surpasses US$500 Million in Exports in 2017

Gone are the days when dried seaweed was seen in the West as “black paper.” Now, consumers around the world are interested in seaweed and many look for seaweed products from Korea. In Korea, it is produced mainly along the southern coast of the peninsula, where the sea water is clean and of optimal temperature for the growth of seaweed. On top of the high quality of the seaweed, Korean producers have gone to great lengths to develop a variety of products, such as dried seaweed, seaweed snacks with different flavors (jalapeno, corn, almond, and so on), and gim-bugak (deep-fried seaweed coated with starch), to appeal to different types of consumers. Thanks to these efforts, Korean seaweed products are receiving favorable reviews in foreign markets, and sales are steadily increasing. Last year, Korean seaweed products posted a record-high US$513.10 million in exports, exceeding the US$500 million mark for the first time.
