Management of Ingredient’s Food Safety
CJ CheilJedang recognizes that the use of safe ingredients is essential in producing food that everyone can consume without concern. With this in mind, we carefully choose organic ingredients. Though our products are certified organic by the government, we carefully manage our food ingredients by independently carrying out additional evaluations that are even more stringent than the relevant laws and regulations. We constantly validate the safety of ingredients used in our products.
