Each April marks Soy Foods Month. April 2024 finds ASA’s World Initiative for Soy in Human Health program recognizing one of its important partnerships in Latin America. WISHH partners with Dominican Republic-based CTC Group to help deliver nutritious foods packed with U.S. soy to consumers in Latin America.

“Soy is a nutritional powerhouse,” says CTC Group’s Elsy Alvarez.

Alvarez praises CTC’s Group work with WISHH for helping deliver not only protein packed food to the company’s customers, but also providing CTC with technical support that paves the way for the multiple ways U.S. soy can be applied for food applications. Alvarez’s company hopes to feed upwards of 25 million consumers across Latin America.

“WISHH has been a blessing for us in our regions because of the knowledge it provides us through higher and advanced education. It has been wonderful for us to find use in our regions for soy-based ingredients related to the nutrition of Latin Americans.”
