Hunan Products

Located in the middle reach of the Yangtze River in China, Hunan has long been known as a land of rice and fish. The abundant rivers and lakes and the humid subtropical monsoon climate foster the diversity and richness of the products in this region.


Hunan has various kinds of agricultural and forestry specialties, such as Zhangjiajie wild agarics, preserved meat, Xiangxi camellia oil and baked fish (shrimp). In addition, Xiangxi stone carvings, Lilin porcelain, Xiang embroidery and Hengyang bamboo carvings are representatives of Hunan handicrafts. Furongwang cigarette, Jiugui liquor, Junshan Yingzhen tea, and Anhua dark tea are enjoying high fame at home and abroad. Beyond that, Shimen grass mat and Taojiang bamboo mat are popularly used in numerous households.


Until May, 2018, Hunan has carried out geographical indication (GI) protection of 77 featured local products, involving liquor, poultry, aquatic products, tea, traditional Chinese medicine materials, fruits, vegetable, and handicrafts. These products were selected from more than 90 counties and regions of Hunan's 14 cities and prefecture. 


Hunan products, based on this vast and rich land at the south of Dongting Lake and produced by diligent and wise Hunan people, represent the inheriting and carrying forward of the long-standing Huxiang culture.
