The Myanmar Konjac (elephant foot yam) Producer and Exporter Association will develop a project to encourage the consumption of konjac in the domestic market while the konjac is exported abroad.
The Myanmar konjac is produced in Myanmar and mainly exported to China. Its consumption in Asian countries, including China, Japan, and South Korea, is high. However, the consumption in Myanmar is low.
“Domestic konjac consumption is lower than in China and Japan. South Korea’s consumption is very high. The Myanmar konjac is a healthy food both in terms of nutritional value and health. In Myanmar, konjac consumption and konjac-related food production are still low. As an association, we are carrying out activities to promote consumption in Myanmar and reach the domestic market,” said Ko Pyae Tha San, the Secretary of the Myanmar Konjac (elephant foot yam) Producer and Exporter Association.
Besides konjac-based foods produced in Myanmar, such as konjac noodles and salad, konjac is consumed in a few other ways, but compared to countries in the Asian region, consumption remains relatively low.
In addition to this, the association is currently working with relevant departments to obtain a certificate from the General Administration of Customs of China (GACC) to encourage the export of konjac to China. — ASH/MKKS
