With the expansion of its plant from May, Agroindustrias Gumarsal will increase the number of tons of processed wheat per day from 150 to 400.
In addition to the increase in daily production of wheat flour, Agroindustries Gumarsal will be venturing into pulp, with the entry into operation of the expansion of Molinos San Juan. The company, which claims to have 17% of the consumer market for flour in the country, plans to raise its stake up to 40% of the market once it begins to increase production, scheduled for mid-May.
Agroindustrias Gumarsal has announced that it will increase capacity at the corn flour processing plant it operates in the municipality of San Juan Opico.
After the Maseca plant announced its closure, the Salvadoran company Gumarsal has announced an increase in the production capacity of the plant it operates in the country, which currently produces 3000 tons of cornmeal per month.
As part of its plan to invest $15 million in two years, Agroindustrias Gumarsal will build a mill to process wheat and maize flour.
The processor and marketer of flour considers that the conditions are favorable for the economy and the agribusiness sector and plans to begin operating the new mill this month, which will be added to the already operating onein San Juan de Opico.
Given the shortage in the local and regional market, Gumarsal will import beans from the African country.
Wilfredo Guerra, import manager of Gumarsal, indicated that it is negotiating the import of a considerable amount.
The manager added to Elsalvador.com, "Nicaragua, for example, still holds more than three thousand quintals of beans which could be marketed in the country, but due to customs problems it has not been able to enter. Guerra said that he asked the Ministry of Agriculture to negotiate this with their counterpart in Nicaragua, but so far it has received no response."
