    Cabrera met the Foundation in 2014, in a conference to present the Strengthening Program for food companies that FUMEC has with COMECYT. Thanks to this rapprochement, the Program provided resources on issues of innocuousness to ensure quality in their products, allowed them to grow 30% in sales, also offered the possibility of expanding their operations outside Mexico, having as potential markets countries like Cuba, Argentina, Venezuela and Brazil.

    "Before I wanted to be an all-rounder, but FUMEC taught me that I can t do everything, I need to ally myself with experts, the Foundation gave me that link with other companies in my field, which helped us grow. I didn´t t think we were going to grow the 30% that FUMEC promised me, but that´s how it was" she says.
