According to "The Compendium of Material Medica", Ejiao was first recorded in "Shennong's Classic of Materia Medica". Taohong Jin, a Taoist of Southern Dynasties, once wrote in his "Collected Commentaries on Shennong's Classic of Materia Medica","Ejiao is produced in Dong'e, hence its name." Dong'e is where Dong'e Town, Pingyin County is located nowadays. With a long history of over 2,500 years of making Ejiao, Dong'e Town boasts advantaged geographical and natural environment. Since Dong'e produces high quality Ejiao, it is designated as"Hometown of Ejiao in China"by the government. In 1950, the first state-owned Ejiao factory was established in Dong'e Town. Incorporating all the famous old workshops of making Ejiao, the factory is located before the Shier Mountain and beside the Langxi River.
