5 August, Thimphu: It was a special day for the family of Bhutan Agriculture and Food Regulatory Authority (BAFRA) as we celebrated the 20th Foundation day on 5th August 2020. BAFRA was founded as the competent authority for “Biosecurity and Food Safety”, with the mandate “to safeguard plants, animals and environment from biosecurity threats and ensure safe food for the consumers through science-based approaches for socio-economic wellbeing and sustainable environment”.
The day was marked with a small cake ceremony, wherein the former Director Generals of BAFRA, Dasho Karma Dorji and Dasho Namgay Wangchuk along with the current Director General of BAFRA, DR Tashi Samdup graced the day.
