The UN Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO), Kyambogo University and the Uganda National Bureau of Standards (UNBS) have trained food inspectors from 10 districts on better food handling practices and adoption of international standards.
“There is need for the country to carefully adopt international standards especially those of our trading partners,” Jenipher Namuyangu, the water state minister, explained during the hand over of certificates to participants at Sky Hotel International in Kampala last week.
The certificate course in food inspection trained inspectors in international standards, regulations and laws, which will help in penetrating developed countries’ food markets.
