AVING News interviewed Choi Sang-ho, the CEO of Allfin, which participated in the MIK HOT SPOT (Made in Korea Online Exhibition) Seoul Food Startup Center.
Please introduce your company briefly.
Hi. This is Choi Sang-ho Choi, CEO of Allfin. We are curating the nutrition for pets based on a variety of information, including the pet’s skin and fur, microbes in the intestines, and urine DNA.
The food is basically divided into the type of meat according to the pet’s preference. There are six types of meat: chicken, duck, lamb, beef, pork, and tuna. And according to the pet’s health, the nutrition is balanced with minerals.
First, dogs receive the meal plan according to the result of health checkup, adding or subtracting the ingredients, with the consideration of allergy and preference of dogs.
What are your future plans?
Currently, we are planning to make freeze-dried products for supplying food domestically and overseas. The part currently preparing for export is the local kitchen. It is a system which we provide customized food produced locally to local hospitals directly by partnering with local hospitals. We are continuously developing programs in partnership with domestic hospitals to continue the business model within the hospital itself.
Any last words you would like to say?
We are exploring business models for the health of pets and the happiness of petwoners. The collected data can be used as clinical information data to study human health as well. We are developing technology for the health of pets and people.
