Lacthosa has forged a value chain that shows that in Honduras we are able to produce with quality using as raw material, the milk and oranges from our Honduran fields, by involving directly and indirectly thousands of people.
The Honduran dairy production chain, today, is orderly, and stable, with sustainable growth in the last years of 4% per year in milk production. We ensure the purchase of more than 140 million liters of milk annually which represents 20% of the national production.
We started this comprehensive strategy in 1998 when Lacthosa established the first 40 Milk Collection and Cooling Centers (CRELs), to assist milk suppliers with appropriate equipment and physical facilities for the proper handling of raw milk.
We have invested in the installation and operation of 104 Collection and Cooling Centers at national level, which benefit more than 14 thousand families living in rural areas.
