South Korean Government Promotes Its Seaweed Industry

September 28, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries is promoting a national quality standard, dubbed K-FISH, that must be followed by companies producing, selling, and exporting seaweed-based foods, including snacks. Korea’s dried seaweed exports – edible seaweed or laver (kim in Korean) – soared 50.3 percent in 2017. Seaweed, produced from algae, can be processed into a wide range of products. Seaweed snacks are slowly penetrating the global market with varieties such as a seaweed-fish meat combo and seaweed with ingredients like coconut, grains, and anchovy. The large variety of Korean seaweed snacks has yet to be discovered by foreign consumers, according to the Korean government.[Image Credit: © National Federation of Fisheries Cooperatives]
