The mission of Pro-Organic Belize is
to educate, inspire, and encourage farmers
regarding the benefits and opportunities
of a sustainable pro-organic system of
agriculture that regenerates the soil, and
to educate consumers on the health
benefits of pesticide-free produce.
Objectives and Goals:
Through education and supportive
services, we help farmers and consumers
understand the benefits and opportunities
in growing and consuming organically grown
food -- toward the essential shift in
agriculture from using toxic chemicals
that compromise the integrity of the
environment, our food, our water, our
soil, and our health to natural more
cost-effective agricultural practices that
promote well-being and sustainability.
Projects and Activities
Pro-Organic Belize Consumers Group In response
to many people now wanting to buy
safer produce, POB organized a
pesticide-free consumers group,
which has been operating in the San
Ignacio area since October 2016. Due
to its success, membership has
opened to individuals, families and
businesses in the Belmopan area as
other Belizean organizations concerned
about the environment and food
safety, we sponsored a project to
bring globally recognized authority
Dr. Stephani Seneff to Belize in
April 2017. She testified before the
Pesticide Control Board and spoke to
farmers and the public about the
dangers of using glyphosate on
farmland. It is our intention to
reveal the truth about the
consequences to the environment and
our health toward achieving a ban on
glyphosate. Visit the ban-glyphosate
website for articles, information,
videos, and podcasts toward
understanding this grave threat.
Unlike many other
countries, Belize has not yet
implemented a regular program to test
for toxic residues left on fruits
& vegetables, locally grown or
the WTO (World Trade Org.), since we
do not require testing for our own
locally grown produce, imported
produce coming from other countries
is exempt from testing. We are
working to foster a plan toward
testing food to insure it is clean
and safe to consume.
