Seven meat factories closed due to poor standards

The State Specialized Inspection Agency reported the results of its inspections at butcheries and meat product factories this week. The inspection was conducted from January to May , involving 239 meat businesses nationwide, in 18 provinces and in Ulaanbaatar.
The inspection results of 118 businesses were reported and the inspectors found 835 violations in total. The inspectors said that 26 percent of the violations discovered during inspection were fixed.
Seven factories were closed due to poor hygiene and low quality products, which were recalled from the market and eliminated.
The workplace standards of the butcheries and meat product factories have reportedly improved by as much as 28 percent this year, compared to last year. Factories in densely populated regions, including Ulaanbaatar, Darkhan-Uul, Orkhon, Dornod and Khuvsgul provinces, have updated their premises.
The results will be delivered to the Deputy Prime Minister, Ministry of Industry and Agriculture, Ministry of Health, Mongolian Agency for Standardization and Metrology, offices of governors, and the Mongolian National Chamber of Commerce and Industry for better enforcement of food standards.
