Thank you for visiting the Geumsan Ginseng & Herb Development Agency.
Geumsan County has a 1,500 year history as the center of Korean ginseng production, and its traditional ginseng cultivation system is recognized as an FAO Globally Important Agricultural System due to its renown as a specialized local product and the excellence of the cultivation methods.
However, in recent years ginseng consumption has decreased and the price of raw ginseng has fallen significantly, causing great difficulty for both ginseng cultivators and ginseng companies.
Geumsan Ginseng & Herb Development Agency wants to work to overcome these difficulties and increase the value of “Korean ginseng, a gift from heaven,” which was raised continuously by our ancestors. We are determined to help usher in new leaps forward for the ginseng and medicinal herb industry.
We will continue doing everything we can to develop and supply a greater variety of new products with improved efficacy, secure a record of ginseng cultivation and ensure the safety of food products, promote the management capabilities of small businesses under our jurisdiction, and carry out marketing to promote sales of ginseng products. We are grateful for your warm support.
Director of the Geumsan Ginseng & Herb Agency Yeongsu Kim
