The Belize citrus industry dated as far back as 1913. The first processing plant was established in 1948 in Pomona Village, Stann Creek. Later, a second processing plant was established in Alta Vista Village, Stann Creek. The processing segment has now been consolidated with a redefined focus – with ownership shared by both the Citrus Growers Association (Belize) and the Banks Holdings Ltd (Barbados). With years of relentless efforts, CPBL continues to grow and prosper with pride in the “Land of the Free” – Belize!
