    And that's true. It does indeed. It doesn't happen overnight. But if companies cannot even access markets to develop those products and brands, than it takes a long time even when they finally get access. I have to agree with you there.

    In most cases, people become lactose intolerant because of lack of dairy products as a child. Most people are not born lactose intolerant

    Not true. It has to do with genetics.

    All the Mexicans we've had working for us, every one was lactose intolerant. Couldn't drink our milk, or eat cheese or ice cream. One could eat yogurt.

    Your sample size of Mexicans doesn't represent South/Central America and Africa.

    Edit: plus you ignored what I said about them not having enough dairy products when they were young. Most people BECOME lactose intolerant. Most people are not born that way.

    From the Internet, which is always right, about 65% of the world's population has a reduced ability to digest lactase after infancy.

    Something about being close to the equator through the generations. Only 5% of descendants of Northern Europeans are lactose intolerant whereas 90 some percent of Africans are, as well as most of South America.

    After infancy. It's developed.

    And that's really besides the point. We can ship lactose free powder anywhere so it's a poor excuse

    There's probably no profit motive to send dairy products to countries with no money. Or are you talking about giving it away?

    Those countries have no money because of poorly managed/corrupt governments. Policy gets in the way. I wasn't just referring to our policy. I know it's a complex can of worms, just pointing out it is part of the problem. We can't move our food, and they're starving.

    Go figure

    Well, we're not going to solve this on Dairyforums. This has been going on since BC.

    Still 65% of them are lactose intolerant. If the parents can't drink it, they aren't going to feed it to their kids. Part of that is lack of education and suspicion.

    Also there's infrastructure issues, no refrigeration. Roads. Corruption.

    Yup. But we can develop additional markets. Not all, but some. Which is the overall point I was making in the first placr

    Has anyone on here ever been to Mexico? Did you ever see any milk to drink & if you did, would you drink it? How about cheese? We were there 20 yrs ago & the cheese was horrid.

    Most Mexicans are lactose intolerant.

    Am I the only one on here who googled it?

    I've been to Mexico, loved it! Spent two months driving the Pacific coast from South to North surfing in 2012. Definitely in my top 3 countries I've visited across the Americas. As for milk, yes I enjoyed drinking it and didn't find the cheese to be that bad compared to other countries I've travelled to.

    I am suspect of any milk, even at a restaurant here. it's never cold enough. Which is another thread.

    I'm pretty impressed with your 2 month hiatus.

    As for the cheese. Well I'm from Wisconsin & have never been impressed with any cheese not made in Wisconsin.

    I just read your post not knowing which item you were responding to. It could have been any of them.

    I'm more curious how freddo got 2 months off.
