Nong Lam lingzhi mushrooms in the home market

Doctor Nguyen Van Hieu and his associates have developed the brand, Nong Lam lingzhi mushrooms. They have been on the market for five years and Nong Lam lingzhi products are now popular in most provinces and cities nationwide.
Nguyen Van Hieu has long desired to make Vietnamese lingzhi mushroom products to compete with foreign ones. The reason is the climate and soil conditions in many parts of the country are quite suitable for growing this mushroom.

Hieu and his associates have studied and grown lingzhi mushroom with microorganism technology at the Technology Enterprise Incubation Center at Ho Chi Minh City University of Agriculture and Forestry.

The crossbreeding, transplanting and growing of the mushrooms were conducted by skilled technicians based on the growth properties of each type of mushroom to ensure their best quality.

Nong Lam lingzhi products are qualified for VietGap standards and quality standards CCI 2015 assessed and certified by the Economic Research Institute, Vietnam Consumer Research Center and Global Trade Alliance (Global GTA).
Nong Lam lingzhi mushrooms are diverse in form, including whole ear, fiber, powder, tea, coffee, and liquor, and are preserved naturally without chemicals.

Nong Lam is also one of the first local brands of cordyceps, which are cultured in an artificial environment but are similar to natural ones.

Nong Lam lingzhi products are now sold nationwide through its direct dealer networks. The products are expected to be exported to Asia and Europe in the near future.
