  • Violence continues to rise in Mexico, setting several homicide records in recent months.
  • Growing insecurity has started to take a toll on local commercial operations.
  • Some businesses are electing to pull out of parts of the country.

Grupo Lala, one of Mexico’s 20 largest private companies, shut down operations at a distribution center in southern Tamaulipas state at the beginning of May due to security conditions the firm said “were not adequate to continue operating.”

The company, which controls almost 50% of the milk market in Mexico, offered few details, saying it was working with authorities to “restart activities as soon as possible.”
