Established in 1999, Haewon Biotech is a Korean company that conducts research and material development in the field of marine biotechnology. This company mainly produces marine bio-materials such as collagen, mucopolysaccharide, and seaweed polysaccharide, which are used as raw materials for foods, functional health foods, and cosmetics.
Haewon Biotech, which leads the marine biotechnology industry based on continuous research and development, collaborated with Prof. Muyembe Tamfum and signed an agreement for the development of antiviral drugs and joint research.
Haewon Biotech, a Korean marine biotechnology company, attracted attention in 2002 by successfully separating and refining ‘fucoidan’, a type of sulfur-containing polysaccharide, from large brown algae for the first time in Korea. An official from Haewon Biotech explained, "Fucoidan inhibits the attachment of the virus to the host cell and blocks the penetration of the virus into the cell, thereby preventing infection with the Covid-19 virus." and “It has an excellent effect of enhancing the body's immune function through antioxidant action, such as preventing infection by suppressing the replication of viruses,” he emphasized.
According to Haewon Biotech, 1,000 doses of the antiviral adjuvant treatment antiviral drug 'Antiv Fucan' were provided to the Congo through joint research with the National Medical Research Institute of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Taking this as an opportunity, they announced plans to promote a business to supply drugs for viral diseases and health supplements throughout Africa while promoting continuous cooperation. An official from Haewon Biotech said that he believes that marine biotechnology can contribute to improving the quality of life and will continue to walk the right path to provide better solutions.
On the other hand, Korean marine biotechnology company Haewon Biotech has established itself as a leading company in the marine biofield with technology accumulated over 20 years, and has built a third plant and expanded production facilities in line with the increased supply of raw materials.
