Banana rebounds but sugar and citrus suffer in fourth quarter of 2023; livestock rises

Posted: Wednesday, March 27, 2024. 10:26 am CST.

By Aaron Humes: The Statistical Institute of Belize (SIB) reports that in the fourth quarter of 2023, banana recorded an increase of four thousand metric tons of production.

Livestock production rose 18.4 percent due to greater consumption of cattle, pigs and poultry.

However, despite an increase of shrimp production, marine products fell 8.3 percent with less production of fish, conch and so on.

Sugar had a slow start with six thousand tons of production while citrus was down significantly from the previous fourth quarter figure due to citrus greening issues.
