Through our experience in FAC we managed to sell our milk liner to our first formal client.  We have been contacted by all the big players of the Chilean industry; distributors, huge dairies, veterinarians, etc. We are negotiating with providers to produce our master batch and organizing all the operations with the JV with the Argentinian manufacturer to satisfy this demand. And the media attention keeps on going!”
