Milk producers demand US$0.6 per liter on-farm
Santo Domingo.- Hundreds of milk producers on Wed. converged on the Agriculture Ministry in a motorcade to demand higher milk prices from dairy companies.
Milk Producers Association (Aproleche) president Eric Rivero, said that for more than seven years the price per liter of milk on the farm has remained between 21 and 23 pesos despite that it has been raised to consumers several times.
H said farmers have been working without any kind of profit for several years since their production costs exceed RD$23 per liter of milk. “That’s why we demand that industrialists pay $30 pesos (US$0.6) per liter of milk.”
