bscfaThere are some new developments in the sugar industry as reports have it that the Belize Sugar Cane Farmers Association is to be registered as a company and no longer an association. At least that is what some media houses have been reporting but from what CTV-3 News understands, that is not the case. We have tried speaking with Chair of the Committee of Management Ezekiel Cansino but have been unsuccessful. We have been reliably informed however that the BSCFA is still an Association. What officials at the association are trying to do is to register the group under the Cooperative and Companies Act.

 

The purpose, we understand, is to have the association under a legal frame to protect the association. According to reports we received, the association was no longer legally protected under the Sugar Act after that act was amended by government. While the association was registered under the Sugar Industry Control Board as an Association, the group no longer had any form of legal protection under this process. We understand that the Association will be holding a meeting to clarify the confusion tomorrow. We will be bringing more on this matter as more information becomes available.
