Food Hub and Music Studios Also Getting Tourism Funds

Anthony Mahler

And, there will also be funds for some culinary and cultural projects. The establishment of a food hub on Mahogany Street in Belize City and construction of two music studios are among the projects being financed.


Anthony Mahler, Minister of Tourism and Diaspora Relation

“The total is three million Belize dollars. A portion will go for a food hub, but fancy word “gastronomy corridor” on Mahogany Street. That strip where all the restaurants are, we are going to redo that. We want to do two major music studios across the country, one in Belize City and one in Dangriga. We will help some other smaller music studio. Food is a part of tourism, culture is, and so we want to take that to the next level, food, music, our local wines, even all the pepper and sauces that we do here in the country, herbs in terms of being a part of the product. I think that is crucial. We want to invest in that area as well. We have a lot of talented musicians. They just don’t have the opportunity to express themselves the way they can. Three million dollars in total, a portion of it, maybe four hundred thousand, goes to the gastronomic corridor and another two hundred and fifty thousand to the music studios. Then, the rest goes to the matching grants.”
