South Korea marked No.1 in life expectancy among 35 OECD members. Not surprisingly, more and more people in the nation values health above anything else. It is common that we can see nutritional facts and benefits of food on the wall when we visit restaurants. South Korean’s love of healthy food has long history and one of highly sought after is but porridge.
Undoubtedly, porridge is good for digestion and makes stomach comfortable. It is widely eaten especially by patients and elderly people for this reason. Today, having a bowl of porridge has become never convenient than before as food companies are competitively releasing ready-to-eat porridge.

A South Korean food company Green Family has walked a single path to make nothing but porridge for the last 20 years. Recognized its passion and excellence by the Korea Food Research Institute and the Rural Development Administration, Green Family has supplied a variety of porridge lines to more than 200 sanatoriums and convalescent hospitals nationwide which makes the company No.1 in that regard.
