In the last general meeting held with sugar cane farmers, the floor passed a motion to distribute 2.5 million Belize dollars evenly among farmers. From the onset, leaders expressed grave concern over the consequences of the motion but added that despite their best interests, the farmers’ collective voice must be adhered. Well, today farmers in at least tem branches received their cheques.

“Desde la semana pasada tenemos al Finance Committee que ha estado trabajando y hasta hoy ya habían diez branches que habían terminado sus cheques y ya estaban firmados y es lo que se está distribuyendo ahorita cada director respectivo branch y se los está entregando a su gente.”


Again we asked Cansino about Fairtrade and its regulations and he said that the BSCFA attempted to get their input in the entire process.

“Sinceramente estábamos en el proceso de enviarles una carta pero entonces el motivo de que no se había dirigido es porque teníamos bastantes cosas que hacer y teníamos la pregunta de poner justificación pero ahora tenemos el hecho de que no ha iniciado la zafra tenemos suficiente escusa porque estamos usando este dinero para los caneros.”


The BSCFA is sharing exactly 2.5 million Belize dollars and each farmer is receiving $471.00.
