An Incheon venture company is gaining popularity by commercializing edible gold leaf consumed with food and beverages as an event product.
The main character is Miingold Co., Ltd. (CEO Lee Myeong-won) in Yeomjeon-ro, Michuhol-gu, Incheon.
The edible gold leaf developed by Meingold is coated with 100nm ultra-thin 24K pure gold leaf through a pre-processing process in a form that can be processed.
The coated gold leaf is imprinted with various types of designs and delivered to consumers as idea products linked to various contents.
It is said that it took about 10 years of research and development to secure unrivaled technology.
It received permission to manufacture items as food additives and launched them in earnest in the food and beverage (F&B) market.
'Masim Tee Gold', which was recently launched following 'Tea Gold A', is the world's first edible gold leaf content.
You can drink or eat it by floating it on coffee, tea, alcohol, jam, etc.
It offers a special experience to people of all ages who enjoy the taste they see with their eyes.
Small or large orders are free to order.
It does not rot or deteriorate, so it can be used indefinitely.
ts strength is that it can be used for various purposes such as events, dinners, gifts, souvenirs, tourism products, and international conferences.
Recently, when Hite Jinro and premium red wine were launched, they were custom-made and delivered for events.
Orders for production for gifts are flooding in from large corporations and public institutions such as duty free shops at Incheon International Airport, Nonghyup Distribution, Dior, Hyundai Department Store, and schools.
Founded as a venture company in 2019, Mein gold has currently applied for and registered about 20 patents in six countries.
Lee Myeong-won, CEO of Meingold, said, "I am proud of being a local company in Incheon.
I want to expand into a long-lived company that provides stable jobs to the vulnerable, such as the disabled."
