noimgeNine days after the Belize Sugar Cane Farmers Association announced its intention to move forward with its proposed twenty two million dollar investment to expand the tower hill factory to increase the production of Direct consumption sugars and broke ground for the new three hundred thousand ton storage unit, the Corozal Sugar Cane Producers Association and the Progressive Sugar Cane Producers association today issued a joint press release congratulating BSI/ASR for their commitment to Belize’s Sugar Industry.


Viewers may remember that following the ceremonies held last week both the CSCPA and the PSCPA refused to give comment as the two associations who had openly accepted the proposed investment by agreeing to see out the current cane purchase agreement, and did not do so until today’s release.


And while the associations go on to reassure their member farmers about the decision taken to accept the proposal for the betterment of the sugar industry, what caught our attention, we must say, is the tactful invitation made to who we can only assume to be BSCFA farmers to join them in moving the industry forward.


The release states and we quote “Our shared future demands that we act strategically, decisively and quickly to shape the future of our associations and industry. We welcome all those farmers who are prepared to join us with that vision” end quote


As you may be aware, the BSCFA is the only association who till date has not signed on to the proposal made by BSI/ASR.
