Honduras Cuts Nicaraguan Cheese Imports in 40%
Government officials, breeders and industry representatives agreed to reduce dry cheese imports to protect the dairy sector.
Wednesday, August 5, 2009
The measure is a result of growing complaints from local producers, who argue constant losses in their businesses.
Industrial and milk producers have denounced that there is a growing presence in the region of products which are described as dairy but which do not contain milk nor comply with health regulations.
The health authorities have announced that they have reached an agreement, but no dates or deadlines have been set to resume sales of the product between the two countries.
Nicaraguan health authorities have restricted access to products elaborated by the Costa Rican company Dos Pinos and two other companies for failing to obtain health certification for their processing plants.
In Nicaragua evaluation will be given to the solutions proposed by Dos Pinos regarding noncompliance detected in the plant and Costa Rica will be provided with a list of suppliers to LALA dairy farms that meet the standards.
