Promoting Culture for Food Safety

Establishment of Integrated Food Safety and Quality Management System

CJ CheilJedang conducts food safety assessments of all products and operates an integrated Food Safety and Quality Management System (CJQMS) in Korea and all global business sites (China, Vietnam, United States, Germany, Japan). As a result, we provide food products that our customers can consume without any worry. Our CJQMS system helps the company proactively prevent and control quality issues that may occur across the value chain, including R&D, production and sale.

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.

Enhancing Communication for Customers
Safety and Security

We provide information on products, particularly addressing
any potential misconceptions, to customers through culturally-
appropriate videos. In this way, we communicate with our
customers to help them use our products without concern.

Enhancement for Customer’s Nutrition

‘Balance Meal’, Home Meal Replacement for Nutritional Balance of Consumers

CJ CheilJedang is striving to develop
products with balanced nutritional
content. In 2019, we launched ‘Balance
Meal’, a simple but nutritious product.
We developed the product with close
consideration on the optimal amount of
daily consumption of nutrients. ‘Balance
Meal’ is a high-protein nutritional food
product consisting of at least 30%
protein based on the daily reference
intakes of nutrients.

HEALTH - 1. With six healthy fermented grain 2. No synthetic flavors , NUTRITION - Containing 30% or more of protein(based on the reference amount of daily nutrient intakes) (Protein, Dietary fiber, Calcium, Folic acid, Vitamin B6, C & E)

‘Returnup’, Neutral Vitamin Made by Fermentation Technology

In 2019, based on fermentation and
processing technologies refined over 65
years, CJ CheilJedang developed and
launched ‘Returnup’, a fermented multivitamin
product, in Korea. By applying
our globally-patented tablet making
technology (Compressing medicines into
regular shapes), we are able to use only
vegetable ingredients extracted from
seaweed and exclude synthetic substances.
In addition, we provide care solutions that
are customized for the physical differences
between different age groups.

HEALTH - No synthetic substance (Tablets made with vegetable ingredients), NUTRITION - 1)Increased nutrients with fermented yeast 2)2.5 times* higher absorption rate (* Based on the absorption rate of selenium compared to non-fermented vitamin products)

CJ CheilJedang’s Efforts for Customers

Since our foundation in 1953, CJ CheilJedang has constantly explored how to improve the health of our customers and provide sufficient
nutrition. Based on this commitment, we developed the following products.

Development of Immune-Boosting
Materials to Prevent Animal Diseases

BIOTECTOR® is a bacteriophage* used as a feed additive. This
animal disease prevention product selectively destroys bacteria
that may cause diseases, including salmonella, pathogenic
coliform bacillus, and clostridium botulinum. We improved
its efficacy compared to existing products to prevent stronger
bacterial diseases (fowl typhoid, pullorum). We will continuously
develop relevant technologies to contribute to reducing and
preventing animal diseases and providing alternatives to

* Bacteriophages: It is naturally designed to target specific
bacteria, they selectively destroy harmful pathogens while
leaving useful bacteria behind. It can also be used as an
alternative to antibiotics, which also contributes to reducing
the incidence of antibiotic resistance and super bacteria.
1)Addressing 95% out of 740 types of pathogenic microorganisms 2)100% bio contents (harmless to human and livestock) 3)Possible to replace antibiotics in animal feed [① Bacteriophages are added to animal feed ② The added bacteriophages are absorbed into the intestines and destroy pathogenic micro-organisms.]
