By BBN Staff: This week, Belize made its historic entry into poultry exports in the CARICOM region by sending its first-ever shipment of chicken meat to Grenada.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Foreign Trade, and Immigration in partnership with the Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security and Enterprise announced that on December 23, 2020, Belize exported 16,000 lbs of assorted chicken meat to Grenada under the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME) agreement.

“Over the last several days, the Government of Belize, through the leadership of Ministers Hon. Eamon Courtenay and Hon. Jose Mai, held focused discussions with their Grenadian counterparts to secure market entry for the Industry. Both Ministers remain committed to fostering strong public-private partnerships with the Belize Poultry Association and other private entities like Western Dairies Belize to facilitate market penetration for local producers,” the Government of Belize (GOB) said.

GOB also noted that Belize’s poultry industry has been preparing to for regional exports since the Caribbean Animal Health and Food Safety Agency’s (CAHFSA) 2017 risk assessment cleared Belize’s two processing facilities as ready-for-export within the CSME.

In 2018, Western Dairies under the CSME agreement incorporated Western Dairies Grenada Ltd. to serve as a hub for exports into the CARICOM market. Through this subsidiary company, Western Dairies has managed to send several shipments of its ice cream to Grenada and used is now using it as a platform to expand into exporting chicken cuts.
