Dairy farmers faced a serious problem which was the unsteady demand from artisanal processors. This caused fluctuations in the purchase price of raw milk and in the worst cases there was a loss of product due to poor management. Aware of this situation in 1998, Schucry Kafie prompted the establishment of milk collection and cooling centers (CRELES). Currently, there are 88 centers run by these associations.
Schucry Kafie has been a pioneer in strengthening the value chain in the dairy sector in order to secure the domestic market, which is why he founded La Fortuna, a dehydrator plant that makes powder milk using the local milk’s surplus production.
He was very sure that Lacthosa would become the dairy market leader which met the country’s basic food needs, processed milk and dairy products, and natural juices by trying to integrate marketing, production, management, and sales processes and trying to search for excellence and growth in quality and service awareness as its constant technological innovation and infrastructure.
Thus Schucry Kafie continues to build his business career in favor of regional development, local innovation, fostering job creation and social responsibility.
