The Premium Brand of the Korean Royal Palace
The origin of Korea Ginseng Corporation dates back to 1899 when the SamJeongGwa department was inaugurated within the Korean Empire's royal palace.
From that time, the state has regulated the production and farming of red ginseng with a vertically-integrated system to uphold quality and supervision.
For over a century, the renown of Korean red ginseng has been spread worldwide by the "CheongKwanJang" name. In order to differentiate it from fake items, "CheongKwanJang" was crafted by adding "Cheong" meaning official product to "Kwan Jang".
This is why "CheongKwanJang" continues to be a renowned red ginseng brand today.
Cheong means “rightness”
Kwan means “government”
Jang means “factories”
Therefore, CheongKwanJang means “Products rightfully made in government-supervised factories”
The taegeuk mark in the logo of CheongKwanJang signifies its status as a nationally renowned item from Korea. The six stars to the left and right of the ginseng represent the prime quality of the 6-year-old red ginseng. The vivid red color of the logo reflects the intensity of Cheong Kwan Jang's dedication to producing highly dependable red ginseng products.
