public and private sector received Quality Assurance Award Ceremony certificates

In March 2012, about 50 public and private sector participants in Mongolia received certificates at the Quality Assurance Awards Ceremony for completing program requirements in a) Hygiene: Food Safety and Manufacturing, and/or b) Food Safety Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points management systems, a component of HAACP. The Chartered Institute for Environmental Health announced this achievement in its recent issue of the Environmental Health News Magazine.

The project will continue to train and certify local businesses in assuring food quality. This will not only mean greater competitiveness in the marketplace, but more importantly, will result in safer food products for Mongolian citizens.

“As Mongolia continues on its path of economic growth and development, quality will increasingly become a differentiating factor between those companies in this country that succeed, and those that fail.”

Jonathan Addleton, U.S. ambassador to Mongolia
