Institutional Strengthening on Food Safety and Quality Control in Supply Chain Management of Livestock Products: TCP/THA/3502

Project Highlights

STRENGTHENED FOOD SAFETY AND QUALITY CONTROL OF LIVESTOCK PRODUCTS IN THAILAND

The primary aim of the project was the institutional strengthening of food safety and quality control in the supply chain management of livestock products. However, its impact was felt far beyond this. Livestock production and meat/poultry processing are among the largest food sectors in Thailand and the contribution of small-scale meat producers is significantly high. These producers, generally family businesses, benefited by improving the safety and quality of their products, and by aligning their practices with the relevant national and international standards. Domestic and international market prices of Thai meat products will be consistent now that their safety and quality are systematically ensured and the risk in trade instability is minimized. At consumer level, ensuring high-quality livestock products has improved the confidence and the level of trust and, by protecting them from unsafe food, has contributed to overall public health and the quality of life of consumers.
