Milk War Over. Nicaragua Resumes Milk Exports To Costa Rica

Costa Rica and Nicaragua resume import/export of milk and dairy products.
Costa Rica and Nicaragua resume import/export of milk and dairy products.

(QCostarica) After weeks of negotiations finally the Costa Rica authorities opened its border to Nicaraguan dairy products of Grupo Lala and Eskimo brands. The decision was conditional upon a reciprocal action from Nicaragua to Costa Rica’s Dos Pinos products.

Last week, on Tuesday, the Costa Rican National Animal Health Service (SENASA) issued a resolution which “enables for three years” the Lala San Benito and Lala Altagracia (formerly Eskimo) plants
to export its products to Costa Rica.

In May, the SENASA denied certification to the Lala plant built in San Benito, Tipitapa and recertification to Eskimo plant. Lala is a Mexican dairy company opening the San Benito plant in May 2015 and acquiring the Eskimo brand in December 2015. In turn, Nicaragua closed its border to Dos Pinos products.

Under the negotiated agreement, the Eskimo dairy plant may send to Costa Rica ice cream, yogurt, UHT (long life) milk and butter; while the Lala San Benito plant will send UHT milk, yogurt and Nutri Lety milk products.

Miguel Angel Garcia Paredes, deputy director of Institutional Relations at Lala, told that “…”We have been notified that both plants have been certified by the Senasa of Costa Rica and therefore have enabled exports to that country, as you know, La Perfecta currently has certification’.”
