According to the incomplete statistics, China is in possession of more than 400 spiceberries belonging to 62 families and over 120 kinds of natural flavors in industrialization production. It is clear that China is one of the countries with the most plentiful aromatic plant resources in the world. The resource advantage effectively guarantees the long-term development of China's flavor and fragrance industry.
The production location of China's flavors mainly concentrate in the south of the Yangtze River and the output in Guangxi, Guizhou, Hunan, Yunnan, etc. is the most. At present, the output of many Chinese flavor varieties ranks among the top in the world, among which the output of pennyroyal, eucalyptus oil, litsea cubeba oil, cassia oil and fennel oil globally is in the leading position. In terms of aromatic plant resources and the varieties and volume of natural flavors, China takes up a vital status and becomes one of the biggest production countries of natural flavors in the world.
