New manager

The new leader of the cheesemakers, Salvador Osuna, pointed out that his main purpose is to be able to achieve a union between the producers and begin to implement wholesale purchases of inputs, as well as products that they use for the production of cheeses with the idea of ​​reducing high production costs and benefit small producers.

“The main idea is to be more united, lower costs, buy supplies wholesale and lower costs as much as possible. The idea we have of buying supplies wholesale and lowering costs is the only thing we can do, cheese does not have many alternatives because it is a single product, ”he said.

He stressed that the association has approximately 25 members, but if they all come together they exceed 150, and those are the ones that produce between 25,000 and 30,000 liters of dairy products per day, but they are seeking to increase the number of members.
