President U.Khurelsukh works at national factoriesSociety
Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/. The President of Mongolia, U.Khurelsukh, worked at the factories in the food industry within the framework of the ‘Food Supply and Security’ national movement.
‘Tsaluut Impex’ LLC meat-processing factory can sort and process 1,250 head of livestock per day. It can deep-freeze 60 tons of meat daily and has a warehouse to store 500 tons. The products are sold in well-known chain stores and supplied to mining and other enterprises. The factory exports to Iran and Central Asian countries and is planning to export to China in the future.
Most of the meat on the market is hand-produced which lowers the hygiene and quality requirements. Therefore, the leaders of ‘Tsaluut Impex’ LLC consider supporting industrial preparation for the meat process. For example, they offered the option of supplying meat to government organizations, schools, and kindergartens from meat processing factories. They also stressed the need to provide financial support to the factories.
About 270 meat processing factories and workshops are registered nationwide.
3.4 percent of all meat prepared in 2021 was processed by domestic factories.
‘MCS Coca Cola’ LLC manufactures and markets 150 types of beverages, water, juice, and tea, of 21 brands and provides jobs for 950 people. Within the framework of the ‘Sugar Reduction Program’, the company has been working to reduce 1-2 types of flavors every year starting from 2018.
The company has put an industrial wastewater recycling facility and smokeless stoves that work by gas into operation in the past.
Executive director L.Myagmarjav introduced the company’s goal of recycling all plastic bottles of drinks sold by 2030 to realize the “World without Plastic Waste” program.
Due to transportation, border, and customs issues, difficulties arise in enforcing the clause of the Food Law, which states that “2/3 of the shelf life of imported food must be valid”. Therefore, it is necessary to consider amending this law to distinguish imported raw materials for food from finished products.
The President, U.Khurelsukh, said that he believes in national industries and wealth creators to significantly contribute to meeting domestic needs with 19 types of products in the next five years and then achieve the goal of becoming an exporting country. In this regard, he noted that the government is improving the legal environment, providing long-term, low-interest loans, and supporting them with tax policies
