And if you think the story ends there, then think again, because it doesn’t end there. In the letter, Tate and Lyle also informs the Belize Sugar Cane Farmers Association that with immediate effect, Tate and Lyle Sugars is also changing the schedule on which they pay all cane producer association including the BSCFA for Fair Trade sugar.

 

The association receives U.S$60.00 per ton of sugar sold to Fairtrade, the highest premium paid out to certified Fair Trade organizations worldwide. With the change in payment, the BASCFA will no longer be paid within 30 days. Instead, the association will receive their premiums until the sugar is sold to consumers in the EU.

We tried to get comment from the Belize Sugar Industries today but all our efforts proved futile. We will try again tomorrow.
