Cheese enterprise booming in Mongolia

AKIPRESS.COM - The Wealth Creators Support Association (WCSA) of Mongolia and Mongolian Artisan Cheesemakers Union (MACU) LLC agreed to jointly build 100 cheese plants across the country to spur new jobs, increase the value of milk supplied from herders, and bring the dairy product to international markets, Montsame reported.

WCSA President Ch.Dalaibayar said the 100 cheese factory project also aims to satisfy domestic cheese demand and export the surplus.

MACU Executive Director Michael Morrow said the project is expected to contribute to Mongolia’s development and is especially benefitial for herders. Domestic milk processing and cheese production will not only play an important role in increasing income of herder households, but also encourage sustainable growth, he said.
