Sweet!

We source the best sugar to make our sweetened condensed milk. Products from Mexico use cane sugar and products from Chile use a mix of Colombian cane sugar & Chilean beet sugar. We also use beet sugar from the United States.

The Milk Makes It

We use milk from Mexico, Chile and the United States so we always have delicious tasting milk readily available.

We Love Our Farmers

Saving Water For Tomorrow
