China-led international standard helps 'zongzi' go global


During the Sui (581-618) and Tang (618-907) dynasties, the custom of eating zongzi became a nationwide tradition passed down through generations.

CGTN's Zhu Luoman explores how this traditional Chinese food is being modernized to reach more people abroad.
