Agricultural Cooperative of Dairy Products of Faial

Since 1893, several dairy factories have been installed in Cascalho, in the parish of Cedros, on the island of Faial, forming Castro and Goulart. However, these disappeared, ending this process with the bankruptcy of the former Fábrica de Lacticínios Faial, in 1940.

It was on October 29, 1943 that the current Agricultural Cooperative of Dairy Products of Faial, CRL (C.A.L.F.) was created, inheriting the knowledge and management experience so deeply rooted in the Cedros area.
