SEOUL, South Korea – In late 2014, Ingredion Korea earned an award for achieving over $10 million (US) in exports at the 51st Korean Trade Day ceremony, organized by the Trade Ministry of Korea and the Korea International Trade Association.
“I would like to thank all Ingredion Korea executives and employees for their hard work and determination to achieve this prize,” said JK Koo, President and CEO, Ingredion Korea.
