The cooperative of farmers
The cooperative of farmers is the next object that we interact but soon it will be enlisted as new subject. It is a venture initiated and administered by women. The farmers’ society involves grouping of farmers, stockbreeders of some areas that their primary activity is milk production, so the milk they produce is collected and brought to the dairy, milk processing workshop and production of cheese and butter.
The dairy is another activity that grows from year to year; the factors that have led to this growth were the improvement of the quality of cheese and butter production, installing new equipment and training of employees from specialists and technologist. Its market extends almost throughout the country. We have agreements with entities throughout the country in trading cheese and butter branded "Dairy Rapsodia."
