Today, the team met with the Colombian Millers Association, for FEDEMOL, which was having its meeting in Bogota. Over lunch, the group discussed the pending Colombian trade agreement with the U.S., as well as wheat quality and dockage issues from the U.S. and how to improve consumer demand of bread in Colombia.
Here, Carlos Paz, the general manager of Harinera del Valle, which imports 280,000 MT of wheat, and owns 25 percent of the market share in Colombia, discusses the issues he and his fellow millers face. (Journal photo by Jennifer M. Latzke.)
