United Kingdom Buying Shrimp in Belize!


A strong will to increase its export market base and achieve the coveted international Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) certification led to the formation of the Belize Shrimp cluster and it is now reaping the benefits of accomplishing both goals.

 

Challenged by an unforeseen viral disease which severely impacted the Belize shrimp industry, the cluster still managed to successfully supply UK based multinational retailer Marks and Spencer as well as the second largest supermarket chain in the UK, Sainbury’s, with 1.1 million pounds of shrimp in 2015.

Under the Sainsbury agreement, the shrimp is repackaged under its premium brand and sold exclusively by the chain as it has agreed not to source shrimp from any other supplier under its brand. This has resulted in a higher than projected price premium for exports to these markets.

Project Content:

l  For Belize’s participation in the 2013 Taipei International Food Show, the Embassy of Belize in the R.O.C (Taiwan) utilized the individual country budget and imported new samples of Belizean products to be exhibit and marketed at the regional Central American Pavilion. The highlighted items for 2013 were: hot sauces, liquors, and coffee.

l  CATO organized one product presentation at the Central American Pavilion for the Belizean hot sauce, Marie Sharp’s. CATO invited its Taiwanese importer, ABCO Co., Ltd., to introduce the hot sauce series, enhanced by preparing the traditional Belizean cuisines seasoned by the said products. Sample tasting of the hot sauces (for the two major brands from Belize, Marie Sharp’s & Hot Mama’s) was also provided at the Center Stage of the Central American Pavilion.

l  CATO also arranged sample tasting for the Belizean liquors (rum). Rum is the byproduct of the prominent sugar industry in Belize. Belizean rum is unique in its flavors. As instructed by the Embassy of Belize, CATO mixed the Belizean rum with fresh juices, and the sample drinks were provided at the Center Stage of the Central American Pavilion to collect the feedbacks from the Taiwanese visitors for further market survey and study.
