With an aim to provide healthy and safe food products to the public and to ensure the regular distribution of raw materials to manufacturers, the Government of Mongolia has launched the first “Meat and Milk” campaign throughout the country on January 1.
“MDM” company is supporting the campaign, which is continuing under “Healthy food-Healthy Mongolian” slogan. On February 9, the company organized a workshop-discussion to introduce its product – small-sized dry milk production equipment to manufacturers, farmers, and partners, representatives of professional associations and experts of academic research organizations.
Prime Minister J.Erdenebat attended the opening of the event to get acquainted with the equipment. The Japanese-made equipment is capable of drying 240-600 liters of milk in a 8-hour work day depending on the milk supply from local entities.
“Although Mongolia has over 60 million of livestock animals, dried milk is imported from overseas. By installing the equipment in rural areas, the number of customers of the product will increase, said PM J.Erdenebat.
Mongolia is capable of producing 400 million liters of milk per year. However, due to lack of proper infrastructure to process raw materials, outdated equipment and low circulation assets, the dairy industries are only utilizing some 10 percent of their total capacity. Mongolia imports around 400 tons of dried milks from abroad every year, which turns into 35 thousand tons of liquid milk.
