Our CEO, Dr. Young Chul Kang, places great importance on the notion of “One Firm Spirit.” This encompasses our dedication to the company values and in giving back to the community that we serve. As a food manufacturer we realize the importance of providing high quality, nutritious food to all our consumers.
We have partnered with Feeding America food banks to donate food from our manufacturing facilities to the local communities. Since 2007, we have donated over 280,000 pounds of food (114,240 pounds to America’s Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County and 165,851 pounds to Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties) for families in need. Our efforts have been recognized as we have received the Top Community Donor Award from Second Harvest Food Bank.
At Pulmuone Foods USA, Inc. we realize there is much more work needed to be done in the fight against hunger and we will continue to support our local communities in this fight.
