While it has been said that Tate and Lyle’s decision to drastically reduce the amount of Belize’s Sugar sold to Fair Trade is due tom the changing EU market, there are those who think otherwise. When the news first broke the first question that was asked was, Is Tate and Lyle pressuring cane farmers to accept BSI’s proposal of 51 cents payment per ton of bagasse? According to McLachlan, that is another misconception.

That’s absolutely false and incorrect as I have mentioned before it is due to the market and it has nothing to do with the bagasse negotiations.”


Further on into the newscast we will speak with Mclachlan about the meeting scheduled with the BSCFA to resume negotiations on the Commercial Agreement.
