The Municipality of Asunción awarded milk for G. 2,473 million on March 2, 2021. The signature that remained with the call was that of Rosa Mabel Capli. The striking thing was that the company presented the most expensive offer among three bidders. However, it was also awarded by the administration of Óscar “Nenecho” Rodríguez, mayor of Asunción. It is the liquid whole milk UAT, one liter. Capli’s offer was almost G. 500 million more expensive than the second highest offer. However, it was awarded the same way. This call has the ID 375.084.
In November 2020, the Coordinator of United Citizens of Itapúa denounced the Government of Itapúa, administered by Juan Schmalko (ANR) for irregularities in a tender. This accusation is based on a report from the Comptroller General of the Republic (CGR) that found cost overruns in the purchase of milk and cookies for the school snack program.
The call has the ID 369,088 for G. 44 billion and remained as the El Colono Consortium as the awarded company. It is made up of Distribuidora Paraguay of Rosa Mabel Capli and Roma Emprendimientos of María Alejandra Mabel Carlson Capli (daughter of the former).
In 2013, the National Institute of Technology, Standardization and Metrology (INTN) detected that cookies provided by Capli’s firm contained sand and live and dead insects.
The problem was due to the fact that the wrappers were not well sealed, so the product was not well preserved. The amount of that call was G. 4,500 million with the Government of Itapúa.
We tried to communicate with Édgar Martínez Insfrán, responsible for part of the government of the call for bids to have more details. However, he did not answer our calls.
