Handwashing with clean water is a critical line of defense against COVID-19 infection, underlining how important it is to ensure water for all. However water does not come from a tap: we must protect and restore healthy rivers.
The Tha Bar Wa project, funded by the EU and under SWITCH-Asia programme, is able to help food and beverage (F&B) businesses install wastewater treatment plants. Enhancing management of freshwater resources are crucial to the health and resilience of communities.
Six food and beverage (F&B) factories within the Yangon Region were assessed for how they process and treat wastewater by Tha Bar Wa in March 2022.
The latest success stories come from potato snack manufacturer, Three Sisters, and local bakery El Dorado of the Divine Food Garden Industry Co., Ltd. Both have now installed wastewater treatment plants in their factories.
25 January 2022: The Tha Bar Wa project organised an online workshop on sustainable production within the food and beverage (F&B) sector, together with its project implementation partner, the Myanmar Food Exporter and Processor Association (MFPEA).
