KRTL and Yuhan to Begin the Development of Products Between Korea and the US

KRTL Holding Group, Inc. (OTC: KRTL) an innovator and pioneer in developing industry leading cross-over tradecraft and proprietary technology and methodology in the hemp, cannabis, psilocybin, and alternative wellness sectors, is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiaries, KRTL International Corp and KRTL Biotech Inc. (“KRTL”), have entered into a memorandum of understanding (MOU) for the development of industry-differentiated commercial CBD and other cannabinoid-based products with Yuhan Care, a subsidiary of Yuhan Corporation, a global pharmaceutical company founded in 1926. Inspired by the hardship that their founder Dr. Ilhan witnessed under Japanese Imperialism, Yuhan Corporation was started with the belief that only healthy people could reclaim their sovereignty and he sought to solve widespread public health problems based on that mission.


Today, Yuhan Corporation is a highly respected corporation holding the distinction of Korea’s #1 Pharmaceutical Company award for twenty consecutive years. Taken over the research competence of Yuhan Corporation, Yuhan Care specialize in natural health products. They have the capability of supercritical extraction and cannabinoid efficacy research to get high purity CBD extract, and this led them to be the first representative of CBD research in Korea’s Hemp Free Zone approved by the government.


This has given Yuhan Care license to be the first exporter of Korea CBD (K-CBD) into the US, as well as the first importer bringing US-based CBD products into Korea. Yuhan Care’s position in the Korea Hemp Free Zone has strong synergy with KRTL’s presence in that space and KRTL’s own KFDA approval and special advisor status within that sector.

“We’re honored to have Yuhan Care engage with us at KRTL, they are a natural health care professionals inherited innovative research competence from Yuhan Corporation, 100-year-old company with a pristine reputation in Korea and around the world. Their commitment to quality and transparency is something we strive for at KRTL and a standard to be emulated by any in the pharmaceutical industry. This agreement allows KRTL to take an incredible strategic step toward our commercial efforts in Korea as the country progresses toward legalization based on the work in the Hemp Free Zone and allows a trusted and significant bridge for CBD products coming into the US from Korea – something that’s never been done before,” said Kai Kim, CEO of KRTL International Corporation.


Under this MOU, KRTL will develop joint cannabinoid-based products alongside Yuhan targeted at the US and Korean commercial markets, develop distribution channels and partners, and collaborate on various Research and Development (R&D) projects within the Korea Hemp Free Zone and throughout the US. This agreement outlines the exclusive utilization of KRTL’s CBD manufacturing partners which boast cGMP compliance, FDA approval, and certified ISO/IEC 17025 facilities based in the US, for the sole sourcing of cannabinoid-based products that emerge from this agreement. Yuhan Care and KRTL share a focus on industry-leading standards of quality, for that reason Yuhan Care sent their Korea-based leadership team of Yuhan Care to meet with KRTL leadership at KRTL’s partnered manufacturing facility in Oregon to do a tour, inspection, and a signing ceremony of the MOU to signify the commitment each party has to the joint success of this venture.


“It is an honor to take the first step in the commercialization and export of CBD with KRTL, a global company with an international influence on cannabis.” and "Yuhan Care is a company that researches and leads the functionality of natural products. With this agreement as an opportunity, we will make more efforts so that the value of CBD as a natural product can be recognized and industrialized." said Jong-Soo Kang, CEO of Yuhan Care Corporation.
