In the Growth of Wheat Lies the Future

Korean wheat story

About Korean wheat

We are at the helm of a movement, aimed at protecting Korean wheat and boosting our self-sufficiency. As it stands, only 1% of Korean wheat is consumed domestically. Each year, we gather 300 to 400 tons of organic, pesticide-free Korean wheat, process it, and store it in cold storage, free from toxic gas fumigation or pesticide treatment. Discover fumigation-free wheat products at NENIA.

Korean wheat is guaranteed not to be fumigated.

Grain fumigation is a practice meant to ward off foreign pests and microorganisms, usually done when grains are imported or stored for extended periods. During long-term storage, this is done to keep pests and microorganisms at bay. The chemical agent used in this process, aluminum phosphide is classified as a restricted-use pesticide by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). This agent reacts with airborne moisture to produce a highly toxic, flammable gas. This gas is potent, posing a threat even in minuscule quantities. It's the same toxin used in World War II, as part of the Nazi genocide.

The Structure of Korean Wheat

The Healthy Pride of Korean wheat

  • 100% Homegrown Wheat

    Korean wheat is grown on our soil, nurtured by our air and water. It is our grain that we grew up eating.

  • Boosting the Earnings of Farm Households

    By utilizing idle farmland during winter, we assist in bolstering farmers' income to increase

  • Preserving the Ecological Environment

    Cultivating 80,000 hectares of wheat releases 230,000 tons of oxygen and reduces fine dust by 100 kg per 1 ha.

  • Guardians of Food Security

    Increasing the consumption of Korean wheat, South Korea's second-largest food source, contributes to improving food self-sufficiency

  • Environmental Stewards

    Compared to imported wheat (US, Canada, etc.), Korean wheat travels shorter distances, helping in carbon reduction

  • Quality Improvement Efforts

    We implement strict quality control.
