Minister's Message

    Welcome to the Official Website of the MFDS.

    The Ministry of Food and Drug Safety (MFDS) has evolved considerably since its founding in 1998 as the Korea Food and Drug Administration (KFDA) and is now granted more authority under the new Korean government. While I am entrusted with greater responsibilities and historical missions as the Minister of the MFDS, I am also profoundly excited to begin the new phase of the MFDS in Korean history. I give you my words to serve the nation with modest view, reflect on the new vision of the MFDS, and put efforts to satisfy public expectations. The goal of the PARK Geun-Hye administration is to open a new era of safe society and happiness for all people. This cannot be realized in the absence of a sound food and drug safety management system. Having this in mind, with 30 years of experiences and expertise as a public official, I will build foundation for Korea to eradicate adulterated foods and to become a globally recognized nation for food and drug safety. We are in need for open communication and cooperation with the people. I ask for your continued support and interest, and we welcome any comments that you may wish to provide us through the website. Useful resources are also made available on our website for public access. I promise that the MFDS places great value on ensuring that diverse opinions of the citizens are fully and fairly heard.

Thank you.

Commissioner
