With the ambition to ensure the safety of the consumers, several inspectors with specialized knowledge from the Ministry of Public Health, veterinary medicine experts, science and agricultural engineering experts have been trained to carry out awareness-raising activities.
The program adds to the Ministry’s efforts to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all.
