Suppliers of agroindustrial machinery and equipment are visiting the country in order to explore commercial opportunities with Nicaraguan milk producers.

Wednesday, June 7, 2017

The Argentine companies that are currently in the country are part of the Argentine Chamber of Manufacturers and Suppliers of Equipments, Supplies and Services for the Milk Chain (Cafypel) and are offering milking equipment, pasteurizers, milk refrigeration equipment, heat exchangers, milk processing equipment and water treatment equipment. Together with the National Institute of Agricultural Technology (INTA) they will be giving technical talks to Nicaraguan producers.

Guillermo Ferrero, CEO of Cafypel, told Elnuevodiario.com.ni that "... after the technical talks a business round will be established between Nicaraguan producers and Argentine industrialists, to offer them their tools and equipment. 'This was not random, but a decision on the part of the chamber. We see significant potential in Nicaragua."

Wilmer Fernandez, president of the Nicaraguan Chamber of the Dairy Sector (Canislac), told Elnuevodiario.com.ni that "... the important thing about this visit by Argentine businessmen is that they can bring, directly from the manufacturers, the equipment needed for milk transformation by the producing cooperatives in the country."
