Its fundamental shape is a circle that represents the earth, where the Korean crops (grains of rice and wheat) will become ripe. Within the shape, there is an image of the Chinese character ‘正’ (sound: jeong, definition: right) to express the honest heart of a farmer raising crops, and our will to ensure upright management and create the right food products.
As for the colors, we have chosen those that symbolize a fertile autumn field where the grain is becoming ripe, close to the sun that contributes to the richness of the grain and delivers a feeling of abundance and composure. Also, an orange tone was added to emphasize warmth, along with modernity, to represent our earnest corporate image that is combined with long history and traditions.
