The European Commission launches a rising awareness project on food safety in Kyrgyzstan.


“It is important to make more people think about food quality and shorten a gap between Kyrgyzstan’s and international food safety standards,” Steven John Avalan Newton, head of the Assistance to EU-KR Partnership and Cooperation Agreement Implementation project told reporters in Bishkek on November 5, 2008.


The project includes interviewing of some 500 households in Kyrgyzstan on the topic of food safety during and after the project, in order to trace the project’s dynamics. “I expect to see an amount of letters and claims to the Kyrgyz government with certain food safety requirements,” the project’s head said.


According to the Kyrgyz deputy minister of economic development and trade Aidar Mokenov the project stems elaboration of a technical regulation of food safety, which will have a legal status. The regulation will reportedly contain peculiarities of food items production and allow Kyrgyz producers to sell items abroad.
