They denounce poor quality of the food at the Santiago de Cuba pasteurization plant: "It's not even good enough for dogs."

The poor conditions of the dining room and the terrible quality of the food at the Santiago de Cuba pasteurization plant caused workers to express their dissatisfaction on social media.

An employee of the Santiago de Cuba pasteurization plant reported on Monday the poor conditions of the cafeteria and the quality of the food served to the employees of the organization.

"Many tables and few chairs, there's nowhere to sit anymore, and look at the food, this is not even fit for dogs," expressed the woman indignantly in a complaint that independent journalist Yosmany Mayeta shared on Facebook.

The images shared by the communicator reveal the terrible conditions that exist in this facility in Santiago de Cuba, located on Caney Road, linked to the production of dairy products derived from milk.

The images show a large establishment devoid of chairs and tables, while the quality of the food is very poor.

Last May, the students of the School of Sports Initiation (EIDE) Capitán Orestes Acosta in Santiago de Cuba reported that the food they receive at that school, both for lunch and dinner, always consists of rice and peas.

Mayeta showed solidarity with the students' request, who asked her to make public on Facebook the precarious food situation they were facing.

The Cuban government, amid a deep economic crisis, has not been able to provide decent living conditions for scholarship students or inmates in penitentiary institutions.

The worsening of living conditions inside Cuban prisons has alarmed the relatives of the inmates, who have reported the lack of adequate food, shortages of medications, deficiencies in hygiene products, and overall unacceptable conditions.

The activist Ania Zamora, mother of Sissi Abascal, a 26-year-old political prisoner sentenced to six years in prison for participating in protests in July 2021, told Martí Noticias that the crisis is affecting inmates and their families, who "have to bring them everything".
