Local or Imported Milk

Local or Imported Milk

It’s been shaking my head since it was announced and still not sure if my head was shaking to approve or disapprove the fast and furious move that could make or break the NÉW government’s initiative.

It was announced by our Minister of Agriculture that the importation of “La La Milk” and other Milk of similar quality will be banned.
I applaud the initiative to buy Belizean Products, support Belizean industries not only the Mennonite Milk and Diary Products but all industries.

However, it is my firm belief that Belizeans in general will agree that if the Local Milk Industry will guarantee (1) Quality Assurance (2) Competitive Price Assurance (3) Shelf Life Assurance (4) the different variations of milk for consumption and other Diary products.
Then I believe that all Belizeans like myself will stand by and be proud of this singular line of milk and diary products to start with.
Planning a way forward is key.
Not moving forward a the back breaking cost to Belizeans
