Nicaraguan milk exports increase 30%

Nicaragua will export between $84 and $100 million in milk in 2008, while in 2007 it exported $65 million.

Friday, November 28, 2008

Oscar Aleman, vice president of the Milk Producers' Association, Aproleche, said that the main buyer of milk products, especially cheese, is El Salvador, and hence they need to diversify the market in order to avoid concentration, which sometimes has difficulties not related to tariffs.

He believes that markets in Venezuela, Mexico, and the US are important and that they are not being exploited enough and that they are a good opportunity for the milk exporting market.

He pointed out that the Central American market for milk products is important since it has served as the platform to enter other countries.
