In the meantime, companies selling fake sesame oil and perilla oil were often reported through the news. They were caught selling sesame oil made with a mixture of imported sesame seeds as domestic, or making sesame oil and perilla oil made with corn oil and flavored oil. Because of that, consumers are not able to send trust to sesame oil and perilla oil made in Korea. It is not easy to change these thoughts overnight. However, Seowondang, a Korean sesame and perilla oil manufacturer located in Gangwon-do, is attracting attention by putting the manufacturing method and manufacturing date on labels after ordering to turn the distrust of such consumers into faith.
Bong-hyun Kim, CEO of Seowondang, said, “To give consumers freshly squeezed oil, manufacturing begins right after the order is completed. That is why there is no stock. In addition, in order to increase consumer confidence, the product is marked with the date of manufacture, not the expiration date.”
Another strong point is that the oil is produced by the low-temperature compression method. Usually, perilla oil is produced by pressing at a high temperature of 200 to 210°C. Although this method doubles the savory taste, it may contain benzopyrene, a carcinogen. On the other hand, perilla oil of Seowondang is produced at a low temperature of 140℃. So it has a gold color. The CEO explained, “Our product does not contain benzopyrene, and iodine and acid values are within the standard values.”
Perilla and sesame seeds used as raw materials for products are also secured through contract cultivation with farmers in Hoengseong (17 places). Gangwon-do is not only a clean area, but also because of the large daily temperature difference and rich in taste and aroma of sesame seeds, it has signed contracts with local farmers. The CEO emphasized to farmers, "Never mix sesame seeds from other regions or imported, and focus solely on farming so that high-quality sesame seeds can be produced." Instead, it fully guarantees the purchase price. It is usually around 6,600~7,000 won per kg, but Seowondang decided to purchase a retail price of 7,900 won this year. When purchasing perilla and sesame seeds, Mr. Kim visits the farm to check whether it is mixed with imported or other perilla seeds in the country. No additives were mixed except for the sesame, and 100% perilla and sesame were added to the product.
Seowondang's efforts like this are being shown as expected results. Seowondang got good feedback from overseas buyers. Seowondang's sesame oil and perilla oil are well received in the US and Canada.
