1. 불닭볶음면 인기

기사 요약: 불닭볶음면의 식지 않는 인기가 지속되면서 삼양식품은 매운 맛에 대한 틈새 시장을 공략했더니 미국과 유럽을 비롯해 전세계적으로 인기를 끌게 된 것이라고 설명했으며, 무슬림 국가에서 할랄 인증을 받아 동남아권 진출도 활발히 할 태세로 보인다.

Buldak Spicy Ramen craze continues

[1] When Samyang Foods released Buldak Spicy Chicken Ramen in 2012, the company did not expect it would receive such explosive popularity from customers abroad -- especially in the YouTube community.

[3] Buldak refers to grilled chicken marinated in super-spicy red chili paste. Its name translates to “fire chicken.” It remains unknown where the meat dish originated, but it became popular among South Koreans in the early 2000s.

Having successfully expanded its sales portfolio across the globe including the US, Europe, Australia and Southeast Asia, Samyang now plans to make an aggressive foray into the Halal market.
