CJ Cheiljedang is the largest comprehensive food company in South Korea. As a core unit of the CJ group, one of the country's hefty conglomerates, it handles products like seasonings, flour and processed foodstuffs. Annual sales exceed 10 trillion won.
CJ Cheiljedang began expanding overseas decades ago by promoting amino acid products, involving key nutrients like lysine and threonine. More recently, though, it began selling food products in foreign markets.
CJ Cheiljedang began as a sugar company in 1953. According to information released by the company for investor relations, it now has four divisions -- Bio & Pharma, which includes amino acid and pharmaceutical operations; Food, which consists of sugar, seasonings, processed food and other products; Feed & Livestock, including farm management and fodder; and Logistics, undertaken by a subsidiary, CJ Korea Express.
CJ Cheiljedang has numerous long-selling products in its food pantry, such as Dashida seasonings and Hetbahn retort rice. Widely known in South Korea, CJ Cheiljedang always ranks high in surveys of companies university students wish to join after graduation.
The company began its overseas amino acid operations in 1988, when it concluded a deal to build a plant in Indonesia.
CJ Cheiljedang is now developing other Asian markets. Earlier this year, it began operating a flour mill, jointly set up with Japanese trading house Sumitomo Corp., in Vietnam's Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province. The plant will initially produce 100,000 tons of wheat flour and 10,000 tons of premix flour per year. CJ Cheiljedang will sell the products via Sumitomo to Vietnamese noodle- and bread-makers.
