Belize Sugar Crop Season Set to Commence on December 28 After Brief Delay

The country’s sugar crop season is set to start on December 28, after a slight delay. The Belize Sugar Industries Limited (BSI) says that the date has been agreed upon by most stakeholders in the sugar industry and the Sugar Industry Control Board (SICB). The company says its mill is now open to receive cane from all farmers, including members of the Belize Sugar Cane Farmers Association (BSCFA). In a release issued today, BSI notes that while the other associations are covered under their Association’s respective commercial agreements, members of the BSCFA, who do not have a signed Commercial Agreement, will be able to deliver their sugar cane under an open agreement that does not require any signature, just the delivery of cane. The open agreement will be posted at the entrances and delivery points of the Tower Hill Sugar Mill and provides for the purchase of their sugarcane on terms identical to those set out in the Sugar Cane Purchase Agreement between BSI and BSCFA that governed the 2022/2023 crop. BSI adds that the agreement for BSCFA members will apply only to the harvest season commencing December 2023 and ending in the summer of 2024.
