You could try to minimize the use of a stove and eat only cold meals but you might still feel like eating a hot soup from time to time. Hot weather is still a big problem to deal with, though. No need to worry anymore! You now have CJ CheilJedang'sbibigo Korean Food HMR series!

bibigo - Simple & hot, tasting just like a home-cooked meal!

If you go to a hypermarket, you can easily find a wide range of nice food packages that are good for 1-2 servings. The selection is also diverse: from Korean sausage soup to kimchi stew, Chinese-style spicy seafood noodles and black bean source noodles.

These meal packages with which you can easily make a meal at home are called Home Meal Replacements, or HMR. As there is a growing number of single-person households and double-income families, HMR targeting consumers who want to simply make a hot home-cooked meal is becoming popular of late.

bibigo, CJ CheilJedang's global Korean food brand, is a brand that has been strategically launched to promote the value and excellence of Korean food and to trigger the wave of true K-food in the global market.

After it succeeded in the frozen food market with its bibigo Korean Royal Court Dumpling" and "bibigo Korean Traditional Side Dishes", bibigo, as a representative brand of K-food, ambitiously launched this bibigo Korean Food HMR series, reflecting the brand's philosophy of differentiating with the best taste and quality.

Carefully inspected and taste-tested! bibigo Korean Food HMR Series with a proven taste

The new bibigo Korean Food HMR series consists of four selections: Thick Beef Bone Soup, Spicy Beef Soup, Kimchi Stew and Soybean Paste Stew. A stringent verification process was conducted to create the very 'taste' of Korea's four favorite soups and stews.

Food manufacturing experts such as those from CJ CheilJedang R&D center, marketing teams and plants, and upper management and even CJ CheilJedang's Korean food chefs and consumers all participated in the evaluation process. All bibigo products to be released in the future must survive this taste verification system in order to make it to the dinner tables of consumers.

One key aspect of the bibigo Korean Food HMR series is its maximized texture and freshness of ingredients with differentiated retort technology. Another aspect of the series is that it was developed as food that can be served at room temperature, taking into account storage conveniences for single or two-person families so that they can store the product for a long time and use as emergency food whenever they need it.

bibigo focused more on making it more delicious in order to break the stereotype that "room temperature food can be kept for a long time but its texture and taste is not the best." Decent home-cooked meals have been successfully reproduced by adding abundant ingredients to long-boiled and deeply satisfying meat broth.
