                    Know Your Food - Know Pro-Organic Belize

A MUST VIEW: Dr. Andre Leu: Regenerative Organic Agriculture Nourishes the World
Our Mission: 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.

Pro-Organic Belize Pesticide-Free Consumers Group
In response to many people now wanting to buy safer produce, POB has organized a pesticide-free consumers group, which started operating in the San Ignacio area in October 2016. Due to its success, membership opened to individuals, families and businesses in the Belmopan area as well. If you wish to participate, send an email to requesting to receive our pesticide-free farmer's harvest lists emailed to you each week.

Dr. Stephanie Seneff

With 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.

Organic Certification

Unlike many other countries, Belize has not yet implemented a regular program to test for toxic residues left on fruits & vegetables, locally grown or imported. According to 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.

All POB members and friends are welcome to attend general and board meetings. Meetings are held in person and online via zoom.

Hundreds of civil society and Indigenous Peoples organizations call on the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization to renounce a planned alliance with CropLife International - a global trade association representing the interests of companies that produce and promote pesticides.
