Who Are We?
INDULAC uses 100% fresh milk from Puerto Rican farms in the elaboration of delicious and nutritious dairy products such as Long-Life Milk, White Country Cheese and Butter.
We are a private corporation, governed by a Board of Directors which is composed of five members representatives and four members of the private sector.
In February 2016, an agreement was signed between the Dairy Industry of Puerto Rico (INDULAC) and the Cooperative of Milk Producers (COOPPLE) for the Cooperative to assume control of the business management of INDULAC.
By signing this agreement for a term of 40 years, the lease and business management agreement is established with the Dairy Industry of Puerto Rico, a subsidiary of COOPPLE. This contract is backed by the Dairy Industry Development Fund – the sole shareholder of Indulac and the vast majority of milk farmers.
The Dairy Industry of Puerto Rico has the potential to contribute more to the economy by reducing imports and maximizing the effectiveness of exports of high-quality dairy products.
The Cooperativa de Agricultores is the most viable solution to achieve greater competitiveness of the sector and the increase of agricultural production.
The Dairy Industry of Puerto Rico comes to resize the activity of Indulac with a new division focused on improving yield and efficiencies in agricultural production.
COOPPLE has over 210 members. Our goal is for all to be members and to benefit. COOPPLE will be the largest, dynamic and successful agricultural cooperative in Puerto Rico.
This agreement will allow the vertical integration of agriculture and the industrialization of production so that the sector can embark on a new direction to guide the Dairy Industry towards a better future.
INDULAC will maintain the balance sheet function to meet the current and future needs of the two existing processors, while seeking to increase the capacity to produce other products derived from milk.
Indulac has two facilities; The processing plant in Hato Rey and the distribution warehouse in Toa Baja.
Indulac’s quality and production standards are the highest standards of any dairy processor in Puerto Rico.
These exceed those required by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), USDA, the Department of Agriculture, and the Department of Health in Puerto Rico. All the milk we process is fresh milk grade A and therefore all our products meet the requirements of grade A.
