“At the moment we’re only producing about twenty percent of the consumption of milks in Belize that is produced in the local market, and so there is quite a bit of interest in growing the industry. Therefore, we would like to see if we could either partner or have someone do investments on behalf, and the country can grow and create more jobs and keep the dollar home and more so that we could have sustainable job creation.”

Hazelita Kuylen, Representative, Belize Sunrise Ltd.,

“There is a lot of shortage of corn in Guatemala and Mexico and also rice. So, we have a lot of contacts, both in Mexico and Guatemala, that have contacted us personally, myself and my other two business associates, and they are willing to purchase all the rice and the corn that we produce one we are in production. Hence, the reason we are here, looking for investment in order to form our own rice, package it, padded rice or packaged rice, corn, be it for animal feed or for human consumption.”
