Later, he changed directions and founded a transportation line in Guadalajara covering the entire Pacific with its routes. Seeing an opportunity in the sweet town of Arandas Jalisco, he started in 1960 one of the strongest and most important sweet companies in Mexico, Productor de Leche la Vaquita, which he worked until 1979 when it was sold.
In 1973, MR.
