Laprensa.hn notes that "... the short and long-term prospects are flattering for the dairy sector." In the opinion of Edgardo Leiva, executive director of the Association of Milk Producers (Aproleche), "... the price agreement between the formal industry and producers is an incentive that will strengthen the chain."

"... The agreement is to pay 8.5 lempiras per liter from part of the daily surplus recorded in the high season, during the winter. The surplus is 150 thousand liters, of which 100 thousand will be bought by Lácteos de Honduras S.A. (Lacthosa). The remaining 60% (450 million liters per year) is acquired by artisanal plants."
