The insam used at the company is from the famous Kaesong area, the home of insam of Korea. The Kaesong Koryo Insam was well-known to the world as a specially effective medicinal herb already in the period of the Koryo Dynasty that existed between the 10th and the 14th century in the Korean history. So the Korean insam is still called Kaesong Koryo Insam. The company grows and processes insam in a traditional way, not an industrialized way, to preserve the medical properties of insam. Various products using processed insam are produced at the processing plant of the company.
The processing plant has several insam processing and production processes that have reached the GMP standard. The hygienic security and medical properties of all products have completely reached the international standard. The products which have ensured strict quality are on sale not only at home, but also in many countries. Researchers well-versed in biology and Koryo pharmacy are playing an important role in the production of insam products of the company. Through tireless researches, they have made the Kaesong Koryo Insam Flour by mixing the effective ingredients of insam with flour. This flour is highly nutritious health foodstuff because it has more essential amino acid, essential unsaturated adipose acid and vitamin contents than ordinary flour.
The company makes active efforts to further shorten the period of technical updating and speed up development of new products. The demand of the Kaesong Koryo Insam products of the Democratic People´s Republic of Korea is increasing day by day thanks to the officials, researchers and workers of the Korean Jangsu Trading Company who are devoting their wisdom and enthusiasm to the guarantee of high quality and to health and longevity of the people.
