Salvadoran interested in Honduran "quesillo" cheese

Some 23 Honduran craft plants that produce milk products will be visited throughout the rest of the year by Salvadoran Animal Sanitation inspectors.

Wednesday, September 10, 2008

The purpose of said visits is to verify whether or not they are meeting international sanitary requirements; once this is verified they can begin to export the "quesillo" to El Salvador.
The Honduran milk sector is redoubling efforts and the owners of the processing plants are making the necessary investments in order to comply with all the sanitary requirements, said Juan Ramon Velasquez, coordinator of Senasa's Food Safety Department.
