Ms. Zhang from Xiangtan Longpai Soy Sauce expressed her feelings. At present, the old-fashioned industry is very difficult, and the craft is difficult to inherit. Young people are reluctant to go to the old name to do “physical work”, and the road is getting worse and narrower. How to set off a family-old company has become a big problem. Ms. Zhang, who has participated in various old-fashioned trainings in the country, has seen the development history of many old brands. Looking at the development status of the old brands in and outside the province, Ms. Zhang believes that to develop the old brand, we must stick to this sign. To develop good old brands, only the old brands should pay attention to them. Do it well from yourself and pass on the spirit of the old name. And the old brands should be twisted into a rope and develop together. It is necessary to "keep it all the way, and finally reach the best."

Old-fashioned enterprises must constantly improve quality and innovation, open up markets, do a good job in propaganda, cultivate talents, and carry forward the old brand.
