NANNING,China (Xinhua) -- The city of Liuzhou in southern China on Thursday established a college specializing in luosifen, a "stinky" rice noodle with snails and a popular snack in China.

The luosifen industry college will open seven majors, including on the snack's production, design and marketing, and recruit about 500 students each year.

A combination of Han, Miao and Dong cuisines, luosifen is made from pickled bamboo, dried turnip, fresh vegetables and peanuts, and served in a spicy noodle broth flavored with river snails.

It is a signature street food in Liuzhou, south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. Thanks to official promotion and e-commerce, it has seen surging popularity in other parts of China and the world in recent years.

In 2019, the city's snail noodle industry saw more than 7 billion yuan (about 978 million U.S. dollars) in output. - Xinhua
