ABOUT KYUNG NAM

Kyungnam Pharm is a company aiming to attain beautiful health.
We will endeavor through continuous self-development
and research to lead a healthy life.

CEO Greetings

I would like to take the time to thank all customers
for supporting Kyungnam Pharm.

Kyungnam Pharm has continuously endeavored to develop outstanding medicine and medical supplies based on the
corporate philosophy of ‘Health of Humanity’ for the past 60 years so that our customers may be satisfied and lead a healthy life.

Lemona, which is the representative brand of Kyungnam Pharm, was released in 1983 as the first powder type Vitamin C in the country, and is being cherished by consumers as an enduring and trusted brand, through spreading the image of ‘Vitamin C equals the yellow Lemona.’ Lemona has become a distinguished Korean wave product that has attained its share of the limelight in overseas markets as an inner-beauty product.

PM, which is a cure for athlete’s food and a medicine that helped form the foundation of the company, has been a product most loved by Koreans, which is being reformed into a brand specializing in athlete’s food that is available in various dosage forms.

In addition, Kyungnam Pharm has released a number of OTC products, such as Minol F Troche, a treatment for sore throats, and Kyungnam Vitamin C tablet, a high-content Vitamin C product, and has now settled as an OTC specializing pharmaceutical company, true to its name.

In addition, the company is equipped with both technology and stability, by owning the placenta bio core technology that is known as the source of life. Moreover, the company is continuing to show a consistent growth rate in the placenta market with ‘Jahasaengryuk,’ a human placenta drink, after starting with the ‘placenta hydrolysate’ ingredient.

Kyungnam Pharm will strengthen its competitiveness through proactive management while procuring future growth engines through reinforcing specialized personnel, drastic investment in facilities, creation of future food items, and continuous cultivation of best-selling items in the future.

Moreover, all officers and employees will continuously endeavor as a total healthcare company to lead the future medicine and medical supplies industry, while putting forth values of strengthening corporate social responsibility (CSR) and customer trust and satisfaction as the essence of management. Thank you.

– Representative Director and President Chung-hyo Ryu
