And while the fate of the Belize Sugar Industry seems to be in limbo, the ‘walkout’ thrown by the BSCFA comes under the basis of principles where the association felt their basic economic rights are being trampled.

A memorandum of agreement provided to us and signed on July 26th 2002, revealed that indeed the BCSFA and BSI agreed that the sharing of revenue arising from the sale of any by-product not covered in their present agreement will be subject to future discussions and the sharing of revenue will be based on the results of those discussions. The BSCFA hopes to finalize the new commercial agreement by the start of the new crop season, which is slated for November 25th.
