  • vision1


    Peniel World believes that research ability and technology serve to be engines for growth of company. Taking advantage wasabi, one of indigenous plants in Korea which kills bacteria, fungi and insects and has various effects on health as a food source, Peniel World was established to conduct research on wasabi, accumulate technical skills and develop products with wasabi extracts. More studies are needed on effects of wasabi, method of cultivation, technology of extract and effects of extract for commercialization of wasabi, but there is a lack of research on them under poor research conditions.

    Peniel World believes that that research ability and technology serve to be engines for growth of company. Peniel World will conduct researches on cultivation of wasabi, technology of extract, its value as food, effects of extract (antimicrobial activities, antioxidant activities, anti-mutation activities, anti-cancer activities, anti-tumor activities, immune-enhancing activities, anti-thrombosis activities, blood pressure lowering activities and anti-cholesterol activities) and accumulate technical skills. For this purpose, Peniel World built the system for industry-university cooperation with food microbiology laboratory in marine biotechnology department of Gangneung National University and we are preparing additional research and technology investment plans.



    Peniel World cherishes data and information. Peniel World will collect and analyze all the information related to business (especially wasabi).
    Peniel World will categorize, process and store all
    the information in a systematic way and share with other people who need it.

  • vision3


    Peniel World operates global business. Peniel World extends its activities beyond domestic market.
    In the early stage of business, Peniel World limited itself to domestic market due to the limitations in human and material resources, but now it is expanding its business to global markets.
