Mongolian agri-business Just Agro LLC has received Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) certification for its meat company Makh Market, investment solution firm M.A.D. reports.

Just Agro LLC is the first Mongolian company to achieve an international safety standard, but the government aims to get 60% of food products HACCP-approved by 2016.

The certificate was presented to T Sodnomdarjaa, the company’s CEO, by head of the Mongolian Meat Association L. Gankhuu.

Sodnomdarjaa said: “This is only the beginning. We have worked for two whole years on research and study to have Mongolian meat pass international safety and quality standards. We have spent MNT50bn ($36.8m) to upgrade our technologies, and purchased MNT61bn ($44.9m)-worth of meat from herders, which we believe was an exceptional assistance for the herding families. We have spent MNT1bn ($736,649) to train our employees to work at world standards.”
