“Contraband citrus?” Buy Belizean, says BAHA

Posted: Friday, May 3, 2024. 3:25 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: The citrus industry’s well-publicized twin woes of decreased production and citrus greening has apparently tempted some to try importing fresh citrus products such as orange, grapefruit and lime.

But with the exception of Tahiti lime from Mexico, according to the Belize Agricultural Health Authority (BAHA) in a statement, the importation of citrus as fresh fruit is currently not admissible, and it is surveilling for illegal importations and distribution of regulated agricultural commodities, including citrus. 

The Authority states, “We remind all individuals and business establishments that possession of such commodities is a violation of the BAHA Act and will be met with strict enforcement of penalties as prescribed under BAHA’s regulation, SI No. 34 of 2022. The public is also reminded to apply for an import permit from BAHA prior to the importation of products regulated by the Authority.”
