A time-honored Brand
For centuries, Korean Ginseng had been known to the world simply as “Korean Ginseng.” However, as the Korean government began to enforce incredibly high standards of quality control, it took on a new name: CheongKwanJang. Since then, the name CheongKwanJang has become a synonym for trust, emerging as the national brand of Korea on the global stage.
Following the tradition of Samjungkwa in 1899, CheongKwanJang, meaning, “products rightfully made in government-supervised factories,” has been exported around the world, while maintaining its reputation as a premium brand. Today, it is highly sought after as a health food in nearly 40 countries.

A World-class Luxury, CheongKwanJang
Many Chinese people have lauded Korean Ginseng as the ‘elixir of life,’ citing its legendary benefits. So highly regarded is Korean Ginseng, in fact, that in 1995, Heaven Grade Korean red ginseng (10 Ji, the highest grade) was presented as a gift to numerous heads of state during their visits to Korea, including former Chinese President Jiang Zemin. Additionally, CheongKwanJang was the first Korean health food brand to be displayed on the shelves of the UK’s esteemed Harrods Department Store. Not only have CheongKwanJang stores been opened in eight countries, including the United States, Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Vietnam, and Australia, CheongKwanJang
