Institute of Product Quality and Standardization

The Biotechnology Center was established to provide academic services in the form of training programs on knowledge about agriculture and food, laboratory testing of food and product samples, analytic tools or equipment services and the use of a greenhouse for staff and students of MJU and from other institutions. The Center also seeks to cooperate with agencies and organizations at the national and international levels. The Center has an adjoining state-of-the-art greenhouse that was built using Dutch and Singaporean technologies. At present, the Center is officially called the “HRH Crown Princess Sirindhorn Biotechnology Center”.
The Center also contains the Institute of Product Quality and Standardization (IQS) which was implemented in cooperation with the Institute of Food (Ministry of Industry) and the National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA). The Institute aims to develop the food and agricultural products industry in response to food safety policy and in promotion of Thailand as “Kitchen of the World”.
IQS fully supports organic agriculture by setting up a research service center to make Thailand become “Organic Land”. The IQS is assisting in developing agriculture from the beginning to the finished product. A better way to develop the organic agriculture system is to improve farmers’ skills in order to follow a suitable direction to meet international organic standards.
Additionally, IQS is a organic cooperation center, giving consultation for organic standards and leading organic products to the international market. There are several projects in which IQS cooperates with other sectors such as the Organic rice project with Sukha House (Thailand) Co., Ltd. In this project farmers can sell their organic rice to the company under IQS supervision. Therefore, consumers will get quality organic rice just like getting fresh rice from the rice field.
