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.
