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.

The BSCFA hopes to finalize the new commercial agreement by the start of the new crop season, which is slated for November 25th.
