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“.
BAFRA head office organized 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. The BAFRA field offices in 20 districts also celebrated the day in their respective offices. It was a day to acknowledge all the contributions by the founders, leaders and officials of BAFRA while reflecting on our beginnings and the significant achievement.
The DG of BAFRA expressed gratitude to the former DGs of BAFRA for their dynamic leadership and also expressed great appreciation to all the BAFRA colleagues at head office and field offices for their hard work. He urged everyone to continue with the same spirit to fulfill the important mandates and to take BAFRA to even greater heights. By inspiring ourselves through our leaders and realizing the strength of collective efforts of each and every individual of BAFRA, we re-dedicated ourselves to continue working harder in the service of Tsa-Wa-Sum.
