[THE INVESTOR] South Korea’s organic food agency said on Sept. 7 that it plans to set up a booth at a US trade fair later this month to help local firms make inroads into North America.

The National Agricultural Products Quality Management Service said Biofach America-All Things Organic could offer an opportunity for South Korean food makers to promote their products in the world’s largest organic food market.

The agency said nine South Korean food makers are set to present their products including soy sauces, soybean pastes and red pepper pastes at the organic exhibition to be held in Baltimore from Sept. 22-24.

The move comes as Korean cuisine has gained popularity in some foreign countries in recent years for being healthy.
