An awareness campaign was organized on the eve of Consumer Protection Day

As in the previous four years, this year the RA Food Safety Inspectorate, with the active support and funding of the Strategic Development Agency NGO, held several awareness-raising events during the week preceding March 15. The cooperation with the Strategic Development Agency NGO is implemented within the framework of the “Livestock Development in the South of Armenia” program implemented with the financial support of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation.

As a part of the awareness-raising activities, students at one of the schools in Yerevan and the National Agrarian University of Armenia were introduced to the rights and responsibilities of consumers, talked about how important it is to be educated in terms of protecting their rights, being heard or not being misled.

The issue of ensuring food security for the consumption of the population is considered to be one of the most important components of food security in our country. The informed consumer, who chooses food competently, taking into account its safety and quality, makes the greatest contribution to the establishment of the food safety system.
