The 14th China Nanhua Wild Fungi Food Culture Festival kicked off in Nanhua county, Yunnan province, on Aug 8. The flavorful festival will last six days, offering visitors a feast of assorted wild fungi.

 

Nanhua, an important trade town on the borders of Yunnan and Sichuan provinces, boasts a unique mountainous landscape and a climate suitable for the growth of wild fungi. The county is home to more than 400 kinds of wild fungi, 290 of which are edible. Annual production of wild fungi in the county amasses to over 6,000 metric tons.

 

During the festival, a series of colorful activities enlivened the annual event, including a cooking contest, a contest for the heaviest fungus, an exhibition of Nanhua fungi and a promotional conference for seeking investments.

 

As an added bonus to this year's festivities, the establishment of the Wild Fungi Big Data Center in Nanhua took place on Aug 9. The center hopes to bring the fungi industry to a new level through Chin's Internet Plus strategy and big data applications.

 

By Oct 16, 2016, Nanhua traded 748,208 tons of wild fungi, with a sales volume of 506 million yuan ($759,000), nearly 100 million yuan more than the previous year.
