World Food Safety Day 2022 in Mongolia celebrated under the President’s initiative


On the 7th of June, Mongolia celebrated the World Food Safety Day with rich discussions on the concrete solutions to tackle the national food security, safety and food systems challenges faced in the last few years.

The National Forum on “Food security, safety- Food production” organized jointly by the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Light Industry, Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, and World Health Organization was attended by 800 participants from all parts of Mongolia.

The President of Mongolia strongly highlighted that development of the food and agriculture sector is the highest priority of the Mongolian government in ensuring the domestic food safety, healthy Mongolian population and in the long run ensuring national security.

As part of this celebration, FAO Mongolia also organized three webinars on food safety for different stakeholders, including a webinar on foodborne antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The new FAO project, “Implementation of Codex standards to support containment and reduction of foodborne antimicrobial resistance (AMR)”, supported by the Government of Korea, was also presented.
