Gano Excel was founded by Malaysian Chinese mycologist Mr. Leow Soon Seng. He was born in a family of Chinese medicine and has been keen to study fungus cultivation techniques since his middle school age. Out of his love for fungus cultivation, Mr. Leow Soon Seng began to study Ganoderma lucidum cultivation in 1983 under the inspiration and encouragement of his brother.
After researching Ganoderma lucidum, he found that the quality of commercially available Ganoderma lucidum products is quite different, the high-active Ganoderma lucidum varieties are lacking, and the strains are seriously degraded. For this reason, Mr. Leow Soon Seng visited Malaysia, Taiwan, Sichuan and other places to collect more than 100 species of Ganoderma lucidum, and carefully selected high-quality Ganoderma lucidum strains. After 12 years of ingenious breeding, the stable, high-quality, fresh and bright Gano Excel Ganoderma has been cultivated, and 37 years of 52-generation breeding have been completed so far.
With the in-depth research, Mr. Leow Soon Seng discovered that Ganoderma lucidum is rich in more than 400 effective active ingredients, but because of the unique structure of Ganoderma lucidum spores, the effective ingredients are difficult to be effectively absorbed by the human body and it is not convenient to eat. However, most of the Ganoderma lucidum products on the market are rough-processed products such as sliced Ganoderma lucidum, with backward technology and low absorption and utilization rate. Mr. Leow Soon Seng realized that the Ganoderma lucidum industry needs a new revolution, so he created the brand of "Gano Exce Ganoderma lucidum" which is freshly extracted and easily absorbed.
In 1995, the Gano Excel brand was formally established. In 1996, Gano Excel pioneered the fresh extraction technology of Ganoderma lucidum. In 1997, Gano Excel invented the Ganoderma lucidum coffee series, and used Ganoderma coffee as a stepping stone to open the market in more than 100 countries and regions. Ganoderma lucidum, an ancient Chinese herbal medicine, radiates new vitality on the world stage. At the same time, Gano Excel is also keen on public welfare. For more than 30 years, Gano Excel has helped more than 50,000 recipients in 53 countries around the world. So far, Gano Excel has established more than 100 business divisions, more than 80 branches, and more than 7 million partners all over the world. Its sales in 2017 exceeded 650 million US dollars (approximately 4.16 billion yuan).
After the company's great success, Mr. Leow Soon Seng is still obsessed with the cultivation and research of Ganoderma lucidum, often researching the latest Ganoderma lucidum cultivation technology in plantations and laboratories, and constantly bringing consumers high-quality and innovative Ganoderma products. In 2010, Gano Excel established the Gano+ laboratory and established cooperative relationships with 6 research institutes and laboratories around the world including the United States, Japan, and South Korea. In 2017, Gano Excel cooperated with UNITAR (United Nations Educational Research and Development Group) to develop a Chinese herbal medicine program , to jointly promote the research and development of the Ganoderma industry.
