David Mendoza, technical director of Nestlé Central America, explained to Prensa.com that "... This new collection system will improve the bacteriological quality of the milk and will reduce the time interval between milking and cooling."

Mendoza added that "... The goal of strengthening the logistics and collection of milk is because it improves the quality of the product. The concept is that, instead of having large collection centers, cooling centers will now be set up closer to production areas."

According to reports from CentralAmericaData, from January to September 2018 the main exporter of milk and dairy products to Central American countries continued to be Nicaragua, with $99 million, followed by Costa Rica, with $91 million, El Salvador and Honduras, with $19 million each, Panama with $9 million and Guatemala, with $1.3 million.
