. At Jungfrau, the roof of Europe, where you could reach after several hours by train, over 5 million units of Nongshim noodles are consumed annually and they are becoming one of Jungfrau’s specialties.

Nongshim, reaching out to the world!
Nongshim exports noodles and snacks to over 70 countries worldwide.
We built a plant in China and America. We also carry out some advertising and marketing by establishing a local office in overseas such as China, Japan, Vietnam and Russia and it has led to an outstanding growth in local markets.
Moreover, to further establish its place in Southeast Asian, Australian, European, and South American markets, we are constantly expanding our sales branches worldwide.
Global No.1 noodle company!
Nongshim continues to move toward that dream.
China, the world’s largest consumption region of noodles, has over 7000 registered noodle brands.
Having a highly equipped noodle factory in Shanghai in 1996, Nongshim has continually grown in the Chinese market.
We broke through the market by instilling in the minds of the Chinese that noodle is best cooked on the stove instead of pouring boiling water over it.
Persistently pursuing the market with the belief that Chinese will love the spice as Korean does, we’ve created a Korean wave in the Chinese culinary culture.
Shinramyun maintains its no.1 position in single product sales in large Chinese supermarkets.
The idea that Nongshim’s products are trustworthy and tasty is quickly developing around this product.
Viewing the Chinese market as a miniature world market, we’ve established a global sourcing plant for foodstuffs in Qingdao. Our new noodle and snack factories in Shenyang attest to our business’s progressive growth.
In addition, activities such the Shinramyun World Baduk Competition help promote our brand image.
Nongshim is no longer just a noolde or snack company, but is being recognized as a part of the Chinese lifestyle and one that adds to China’s economic development.
Japan’s 500 billion yen ramen market
Nongshin has run the business since 1981 in Japan, and we started to take off with the establishment of Nongshim Japan in 2002.
Nongshim Japan differentiated itself with an exclusive Korean spiciness in the competitive Japanese market, where over 400 new types of noodles are introduced each year.
Another strategy to localize the business has been to invent new products such as Shinramyun Kimchi, Kim (Nori) Ramen and Uma Ramen to satisfy the diversity of Japanese palates.
Nonghim Japan is expanding its advertising and marketing campaigns by various mediums such as TV, buses, airports, electronic displays in the city centers, subways, trailers, seaside resorts, and professional baseball games as well as product sampling events.
We also conduct fan meetings in the city centers about 3-4 times a year to improve brand awareness.
As an outcome of these such targeted marketing strategy, Shinramyun has been selected for an internationally renowned brand by Japan’s mainstream TV station TV Tokyo in 2004 along with Post-It and Tsingtao Beer.
Remarkably, Shinramyun beat other competing noodle brands in the spicy noodle category and was ranked no.1 in brand recognition in 2008.
Nongshim exported noodle to the US since the 1970s, and established Nongshim America in 2005 in California. It thereby launched a stepping-stone for breaking through not only the American but the South American market as well.
Nongshim America has a 12-acre production plant, equipped with 2 packaged noodle lines and 2 cup noodle lines that operate 24 hours and produce about 200,000,000 products annually.
We’ve developed products that suit American tastes, after having scientifically researched and analyzed American culinary preferences.
We’ve been also expanding the market based on the knowledge that Asian cuisine is considered as a high cuisine in the US; elaborating on the popular Saengsaeng Udon for example.
Nongshim America’s products are spreading across the continent to people of all backgrounds through large discount store chains such as Walmart, Costco and Sam’s Club.
Endless effort to become a global food company While actively breaking through foreign markets, Nongshim continues to work on the fundamentals - strengthening its high-tech distribution system and its trading capabilities.
We also have a partnership with the world’s no.1 food brands such as America’s Welch’s- creator of the world’s best grape juice; Denmark’s Tulip Ham -Europe’s biggest processor of meat; America’s Kellogg’s cereal and Campbell’s juice, Germany’s Capri-Sun and Spain’s Chupa-Chups.
Such globally sought-after products are being supplied to Korean customers in the fastest and freshest way through the Nongshim Poseung Distribution Center.
With forward-looking creativity, scientific management and high-tech equipment, Nongshim is rising up to become a truly global food company!
Nongshim will strengthen the core businesses, build new plants in China and establish bases in Southeast Asia, Europe and the US in order to stand on par with world-class businesses.

we will pay more attention to those living under difficult conditions.
