In Korean, "Hyang" means aroma and "Rim" means forest.
Attracted by flavors, Hyang Rim Corporation was established in 1987 with an image of a dense, aroma-rich forest.
Over the years we have gained a vast amount of experience while maintaining goodwill and achieving consistent and stable growth.
We began with flavors and extracts as our main business, focusing on confectionaries and dairy-based beverages. Since our transformation into a corporate body and trading company in 1995, we have actively been involved in R&D and production for our customers. Our functional ingredients and natural raw materials have played a leading role in the development of the Korean food industry.
We continue to work with world-leading suppliers from more than 20 countries worldwide; including European, American and Asian companies.
