GUIYANG, July 12 (Xinhua) -- Tao Huabi, founder of the "Lao Gan Ma" chili sauce brand so beloved by overseas Chinese students, comes from the city of Zunyi, in southwest China's Guizhou Province.
The acid, red soil in Zunyi, rich in chili peppers, is also home to red sorghum, the raw material of many famous Chinese liquor brands such as Moutai.
But despite these claims to fame, for many Chinese the city will forever be known as the home of the Zunyi Meeting held by the Chinese Red Army.
