Green Days of Autumn Exhibition Continues

By B.BYAMBADORJ

The Green Days of Autumn exhibition is held annually in September, spanning for several weeks. It is organized by the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Light Industry.
During this event, farmers and food producers from every corner of Mongolia converge in the city and set up stands and sell all sorts of vegetables, fruits and other food products at the lowest price in Mongolia. They include dairy products from the Arkhangai Province, airag from Bulgan, tea from Khuvsgul and sea-buckthorn from Uvs.
However, one product that really caught everyone’s attention was the strawberries from the Tuv Province—grown since 2005 in Zuunmod with seeds from Korea.
Some stock up for a year during this exhibition; as one Mongolian, M. Avirmed, at the Misheel Expo Center said. “This is where I buy my years’ worth of vegetables. I am proud to use Mongolian food products. Products grown and processed in Mongolia are safe and trustworthy.”
This year’s Green Days of Autumn is very special in that six organizations from France focused on farming, animal husbandry and food products have joined with Mongolian organizations and companies towards the same goal. One of them is Les Delices de la France, which exhibited fresh lamb and pork chops for sale. Meat and sausages held the interest of many attendees.
Yogurt and cheese from the Mongolian-French company, “Siryak,” also drew many people’s to their stand for a taste of their product which definitely seemed superior to any of the others on display. As claimed by the company, cheese has many healthy benefits for people; and their cheese is special because there are no chemicals and no other artificial supplements in it. They had more than a few types of cheese on display. Sh. Erdenechimeg, the CEO of the company said that eating cheese significantly reduces the risk of cancer.
Generally speaking, the stands with French-Mongolian products were the most crowded.
The exhibition at the Misheel Expo Center will continue for a week. In addition to providing people with organic food, organizers are also providing information on what is a healthy diet. Clean and organic food is the only guarantee for healthy life, one of the instructors said. Nearly all of Mongolia’s food was considered healthy, such as honey, dairy products, and preserved vegetables.
“True organic products only exist in Mongolia. We do not use any kind of addition or supplement for our vegetables. Organic products can have many different meanings in many different countries, but in Mongolia it means that absolutely no external chemical agent was used in its growth,” said an instructor.
There was also a stand selling steamed fish from the Selenge Province, which was on sale ranging from 4,000 – 10,000 MNT.
