Mongolia has a long tradition of milk and dairy production based on its nomadic culture and a diverse range of species and dairy products. Mongolians’ consumption of such products declined due to a transition from a nomadic culture to a settled one but there is a tendency to recover in modern times.
Mongolians with more than 70 million head of livestock used to process their milk and dairy products only in summer and autumn, but now they use modern technology to produce products in winter.
In the past, a small number of large dairy plants nationwide produced a small number of dairy products, but now there are many small dairy plants. One of them is “Milk Man” LLC, which preserves traditional Mongolian milk and dairy products, and traditional dairy technology, and develops its products in accordance with modern cultural and social needs.
Ch. Bujin, the factory’s manager, said due to the transition to modern civilization, the factory produces some types of dairy products that are used only in summer and delivers them to its customers throughout the four seasons of the year.
R.Tuvshinjargal, the factory’s quality manager, emphasized that mothers want to pay more attention to the health of their young children and use yogurt and cheese.
