Lee Hyori States She Was Unaware of the Food Certification System

Lee Hyori stated she didn’t know about the food certification system.

About her homegrown beans labeled as “organic,” singer, Lee Hyori, stated, “I did not know about the certification system, and I am currently waiting on the results from the National Agricultural Products Quality Management Service.”

A representative of Lee Hyori’s agency, B2M Entertainment, told OSEN on the 27th, “Lee Hyori was unaware of a certification system. She grew the beans at home and sold them at the local farmer’s market. We requested an investigative report to National Agricultural Products Quality Management Service, and received contact that the NAPQMS will have to confirm that the beans were personally cultivated at home. We are waiting for the results.”

On the 8th, Lee Hyori posted on her blog that she was selling beans which she personally grew. The issue was in her labeling the beans as “organic.”

According to the Environmentally Friendly Agriculture Promotion Act, to produce, treat, and sell organic products, they must first be approved by the departments involved. If anyone violates the certification system, they are liable up to 3 years in prison or up to a $30,000 fine.
