Milk Collection Center Closes in Honduras

As of March 31, the Lácteos de Honduras Company will no longer receive milk in its collection center located on the northern coast of the country.

Tuesday, March 31, 2009

The president of the Association of Cattlemen of Atlántida, Luis Ramirez, told El Heraldo: "We are extremely concerned because Lacthosa is receiving between 15 and 20 thousand liters of milk daily. The loss of that market will put us in a bind because our main customers are Lacthosa and Leyde."
