By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Belize Marketing and Development Corporation (BMDC) on Friday opened a new branch in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye.
According to a statement by the Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security, and Enterprise (MAFSE), the new BMDC branch is located on Pescador Drive, downtown San Pedro.
The BMDC branch “offers Belizean commodities ranging from honey, rice and fruit pulp, to vegetables, meats and other Belizean fresh produce, both on a wholesale basis as well as retail,” MAFSE said.
The San Pedro branch, managed by Alex Nuñez, opens from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm from Monday to Thursday and from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm on Friday.
The BMDC, previously known as the Belize Marketing Board, has a network of branches which include Belize City and Orange Walk.
Speaking at the opening ceremony, MAFSE Chief Executive Officer Servulo Baeza said it’s important to ensure affordable food items reach communities in the cayes such as San Pedro which import most of their supplies. Baeza congratulated the BMDC for having the vision to introduce fresh produce and a variety of other items, mostly of Belizean origin, to San Pedro.
MAFSE said Baeza also reiterated that the opening of the BMDC branch is in line of the Plan Belize goals of improving the nation’s food security.
The ceremony was attended by BMDC Managing Director Valentin Carrillo and San Pedro Mayor Wally Nuñez, representatives from MAFSE and other ministries, and BMDC personnel.
