FOND DU LAC, Wis. (AP) -- Several Wisconsin Rotary clubs have overcome cultural differences and formed a partnership with their counterparts in Peru to create a successful business in soy milk production.

Two Oshkosh Rotary clubs and another in Fond du lac have partnered with a Rotary Club in Lima, Peru to produce more than 660 gallons of soy milk per day. Using the soy milk byproduct, they also make high-protein bread, both of which are given to the poor.

The groups also work with local municipalities in Peru to make sure the enterprise has water filtration and consistent electrical power.

Action Reporter Media says the Rotarians have overcome setbacks by gathering input from the locals and staying involved.
