I am committed to focusing all my dedication, effort and work to grow this great project and, thus, continue to guarantee the future and sustainability of our livestock farmers. I want all our partners to be proud both of their activity and of the society to which they belong, and that working together on the basis of unity and trust, we can consolidate the Central Lechera Asturiana SAT”.
