Dairy Industry in Camagüey Gears up for Peak Production

The dairy industry in Camagüey has taken over a well organized maintenance and repair program this year, seeking to keep all its installations working for the so-called “pico lechero”, a peak production period stretching from June  to September.

Alexis Gil Pérez, director of the Camaguey-based Dairy Product Company, explained how the cheese factory in Sibanicú, the milk pasteurizing plants of Nuevitas and Camaguey; La Vaquita, and Coppelia ice-cream factory are part of this overhaul program.

According to Gil Pérez, the hardest and most important works are underway in the pasteurizing plant of Nuevitas, some 84 km northeast of Camagüey, which should resume its productions in May.

At present, the factory’s steam and cold water pipes are being totally repaired and it puts into operation a new line for producing soy yogurt.

In addition, the workers of the milk pasteurizing plant of Nuevitas have taken some steps to increase cheese production, by building storage capacities to collect milk and thus meet the demands of this food in this northern municipality.

The dairy industry in Camaguey has propelled a wide maintenance and repair program without affecting its workers economically, because the workers of this sector are those who assume these tasks. (Raysa Mestril Gutiérrez/Radio Cadena Agramonte).
