The representative Korean cuisine beloved by Koreans, Shinsagang in sales of Kimchi stew is a famous gourmet restaurant in Suwon. It is a popular restaurant through 3 generations which has proceeded with the exportation for the purpose of telling overseas consumers about Korean Kimchi stew. We have succeeded in the overseas exportation to U.S, Australia, Malaysia, etc.
However, it was difficult for domestic export companies to lead themselves to the exportation to the most attractive Chinese market because of their complicated inspection procedure. The C.E.O of Shinsagang, Hong Sarang said, “China is an attractive market where 1.4 billion people are living. But it is not an easy market in the position of export companies as their inspection is highly difficult."
In such a rough situation in the advancement to Chinese market, the One-Stop test export support project of aT attracted the eyes of C.E.O Hong Sarang. The C.E.O Hong Sarang explained, "I applied to this project after I had heard of a news that the reliable public enterprise aT was supporting the exportation to China."
