Dongwon Korean Ginseng Co., Ltd.
Capacity to Produce Customized Products
Exporting to 25 Countries Including Japan and the US
Thanks to its effects in energy recovery and skin care, Korean ginseng has become a famous heathy food worldwide and many foreign consumers consider it a representative K-Food. Korean ginseng products have become the world standard and are no longer categorized as medicine but as food products. At the 38th meeting of the Codex (Codex Alimentarius Commission) Commi-ttee held in Geneva, Switzerland in June, the global standards for ginseng products proposed by the Korean government were accepted. It is expected that Korean ginseng will now be more actively exported overseas―to Europe, Central and South America, and other regions.
Dongwon Korean Ginseng Co., Ltd. is a leading Korean ginseng exporter. It is actively promoting the excellence of Korean ginseng in overseas markets.
Possesses ISO22000, HACCP, and Other Certifications… Operates a Research Institute
Established in Jincheon County of North Chungcheong Province in 1992, Dongwon Korean Ginseng Co., Ltd. is a healthy food producer. It specializes in producing a variety of ginseng products based on 23 years of knowhow.
After installing an air shower and equipment preventing the entry of foreign matters, the company obtained HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) certification. It then acquired other certifications such as ISO14001 (environment management system), ISO9001 (quality management system), and ISO22000 (food safety management system). In addition, Dongwon Korean Ginseng has set up a rigorous quality control manufacturing system and acquired GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) certification.
With the establishment of a research institute in 2006, the company started vigorous research and development of new products and the improvement of the quality of the existing ones. Mr. Kim Hae-joong, the CEO of Dongwon Korean Ginseng, emphasizes, “The staff of the research institute includes three doctors of science, three researchers, and two advising professors. Based on 23 years of knowhow in manufacturing ginseng products, we are developing various products with different levels of ginsenoside content according to the preferences of the consumers and the characteristics of the market.”
Strict quality control is one of the strengths of the company. On one side of the factory, the company keeps a unit of each product from each shipment and arranges them by date, so if a problem arises with the shipped product, the staff can check the cause immediately.
Expanding the Export Market to ASEAN and China
Based on the technological knowhow, and in the safe production facilities, Dongwon Korean Ginseng manufactures products under its own brand and through an OEM system (to Korean companies and Korean oriental medicine hospitals). It is also rigorously cultivating the overseas market. Currently, the company’s products are exported to 25 countries―including Japan, the US, and Canada―and sold in duty free shops (in Incheon International Airport and Gimhae International Airport).
Recently, the company started actively expanding its export market to China and Vietnam. For this purpose, Dongwon Korean Ginseng is regularly participating in overseas food exhibitions such as Sial China. This promotes red ginseng products to overseas consumers. Mr. Kim said, “The biggest strength of Dongwon Korean Ginseng is that, with the ability to adjust the saponin content by small amounts, we can provide tailored red ginseng products according to the demands of overseas buyers and the tastes of consumers. We plan to actively engage the consumers in the middle- and high-income group in China and Vietnam.”
