no-photoAnd while the BSI/BSCFA saga continues, our news center got wind of a letter sent to the Chairman of the BSCFA, Committee of Management Leonardo Cano by Tate and Lyle Sugars, the largest purchaser of fair-trade certified sugars.

 

The letter, dated December 18th, 2013 states that the company is gravely concerned with the current impasse between the miller and the producer something which can threaten the industry if a meaningful compromise is not met.

 

According to Tate & Lyle, since they are the ones responsible for the sugar supply chain between Belize and customers in the European Union, it is important for them to know that not only for 2013/2014 but for future years that sufficient supplies of Fair Trade sugar will always be reliably and securely available from Belize. The release goes on to state that if this commitment cannot be met, Tate and Lyle will deem it necessary to make alternate arrangements to meet the contractual commitments to their customers by purchasing Fair Trade sugar from other certified suppliers. As mentioned, we got wind of the letter and as such it has not made it media rounds. It is important to note though that Tater and Lyle forms part of ASR.
