Having 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 purchasing the cookies two days in a row.

In many places throughout Korea, hangwa is not mass produced but made using traditional methods. In this issue, Korea Agrafood would like to introduce our readers to major producers of traditional hangwa.

# 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. Park follows traditional recipes and uses fresh, high-quality, natural ingredients.

# 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, 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. The ingredients—rice, wheat, and sesame—are supplied through contract cultivation from Damyang farms. Last November, An was selected as “sextiary industry person of the month” by the Korean Ministry of Agriculture, Food, and Rural Affairs.
