    Soy Yogurt Meant for Children Ends Up Feeding Pigs / Moises Leonardo
    Posted on August 15, 2014

    ARTEMIS, Cuba, Moises Leonardo Rodriguez — Soy yogurt, the sale of which
    is regulated and intended for children, was received in a spoiled state
    over the last two weeks in the outlets in the town of Cabañas. In the
    city of Mariel in the Artemisa province, in contrast, the opening of a
    new production plant for yogurt destined for Havana and Mayabeque
    provinces was just announced.

    The regulated amount is three one-liter bags a week for every child
    between 7 and 12 years, replacing cow’s milk, the sale of which is
    restricted to children under age 7.

    Many believe that the priority should be to ensure the technical means
    so that the product arrives in good condition, before producing more.

    Ileana de los Ángeles Iglesias, speaking from Central Havana in the
    capital, said that the bags bought off the ration book in recent weeks
    were also spoiled.

    A nutritionist, speaking on a recent National Television News broadcast,
    said that the product should be stored at 2 to 8 degrees Celsius, which
    appears to explain the deterioration of the yogurt during its delivery
    in unrefrigerated vehicles in hot weather months, as well as in the
    warehouses and places of sale.

    On 11 August, the yogurt was sold outside the rationing system and a
    group bought dozens of bags to be fed to pigs, while the children are
    left waiting for a solution.
