Santiago Jácome, productor de lácteos de Mejía, en el último mes ha perdido un 25% en su producción. 

El brote del coronavirus en el país no da tregua y conforme los diferentes cantones del país van cambiando el color de semáforo epidemiológico para su reactivación, otros han vuelto al rojo. Este es el caso del cantón Mejía, ubicado al sur de la provincia de Pichincha.

El pasado 20 de julio, Mejía se convirtió en el primer cantón de Pichincha en volver al semáforo rojo tras haber estado en amarillo durante 42 días. Esta decisión tuvo como consecuencia el aumento de casos positivos de Covid-19 y el incumplimiento de las medidas de restricción que conlleva el color amarillo.

Pero el aumento de contagios no es el único problema que arrastra este cantón. Con la llegada de la pandemia al país y con las actividades de producción y comercio paralizadas, los grandes, medianos y, sobre todo, los pequeños productores de Mejía fueron afectados. Dentro de estos, los productores que trabajan en el sector de lácteos, principal actividad que tiene este cantón, han sido los más golpeados.

Esta industria en todo el país, durante la emergencia sanitaria, ha sufrido una reducción de al menos el 20% en ventas, de un promedio de aproximadamente 6 millones de litros de leche de producción. Aseguran que la demanda ciudadana se redujo en la pandemia.

Santiago Jácome tiene 36 años y es propietario de Lácteos del Día, microempresa que tiene cuatro años en el mercado y en la que trabaja junto con su esposa. La producción se basa en el yogur y para esto necesita la leche ya que los dos tipos de sus productos están compuestos por leche entera y leche semidescremada.

Lácteos del Día distribuye su producto en el sur y centro de Quito, pero su fábrica está ubicada en Machachi, en el cantón Mejía, en la parroquia El Chaupi.

En el contexto de la vuelta al rojo en este cantón, Santiago comenta que esta decisión afecta a los productores debido a que se empieza a especular con los precios de la leche. “Afecta bastante porque no hay entidades de control”, expresa.

Explica que, en el último mes, su producción se ha reducido en un 25%, por lo que sus ventas bajaron. Además, otros de los problemas que tienen los productores, cuenta, es la especulación y adulteración de los precios de los productos.

Santiago expresa que el cambio nuevamente al semáforo rojo en Mejía afecta, sobre todo, a los pequeños productores y ganaderos. “A las personas que tienen tres vaquitas les ha golpeado, porque de ahí a los grandes ganaderos no les afecta”, agrega.

Para el dueño de Lácteos del Día, para recuperar la economía en este sector se necesita de mucho esfuerzo. “Siendo alentadores, de aquí, a un mes sí se podría empezar a reactivar la economía, siempre y cuando estemos educados para manejar esta pandemia”, menciona.

Concluye que el cantón Mejía no está listo para volver al amarillo y mucho mejor para pasar al verde. Considera que es imposible este cambio en el semáforo epidemiológico debido a la falta de la educación de los ciudadanos, así como el apoyo por parte del Gobierno Municipal. “Bajo esta perspectiva es imposible que podamos pasar al semáforo amarillo”, resalta.

El Detalle:

El cantón Mejía registra 488 casos positivos de coronavirus con corte al 1 de agosto y permanece en semáforo rojo tras haber estado 42 días en color amarillo.
