- A Lucrative Agriproduct Surpasses US$ 500 Million in Exports in 2017

Gone are the days when dried seaweed was seen in the West as “black paper." Now, consumers around the world are interested in seaweed and many look for seaweed products from Korea. In Korea, it is produced mainly along the southern coast of the peninsula, where the sea water is clean and of optimal temperature for the growth of seaweed.

On top of the high quality of the seaweed, Korean producers have gone to great lengths to develop a variety of products, such as dried seaweed, seaweed snacks with different flavors (jalapeno, corn, almond, and so on), and gim-bugak (deep-fried seaweed coated with starch), to appeal to different types of consumers. Thanks to these efforts, Korean seaweed products are receiving favorable reviews in foreign markets, and sales are steadily increasing. Last year, Korean seaweed products posted a record-high US$ 513.10 million in exports, exceeding the US$ 500-million mark for the first time.
