Oscar Aleman, vice president of the Milk Producers' Association, Aproleche, said that the main buyer of milk products, especially cheese, is El Salvador, and hence they need to diversify the market in order to avoid concentration, which sometimes has difficulties not related to tariffs.
In 2009, authorities confiscated 1.7 million pounds of smuggled dairy products, worth $4.4 million.
Domestic milk consumption is growing at 3.9% annually, while exports in 2010 reached $74 million, compared to $49 million sold abroad in 2008.
Costa Rica’s milk sales were of $93 million in 2011, while Guatemala’s production has dropped so much that it had to import 66% of its demand.
Increased demand, especially in emerging countries, has determined growth in the sector since 2008.
