Lamanai Chocolate

PRODUCT: Cocoa Nibs

OWNER: Zoila and Roger Hale

In 2013 Zoila and Roger Hale had a dream of starting a chocolate company. They were unsure of the concept or even where to start but began doing research in the beautiful country of Belize. They visited the beautiful cacao farms in the rainforest and were so mesmerized at the sight, which pulled them deeper into the dream of having a 100% organic all-natural chocolate and cacao product company. They started developing relationships with the local cocoa farmers who graciously opened their homes. They decided to use exclusively Maya workers and process as much as possible by hand. After all, it’s the Mayas who are known for chocolate and have passed down the art of chocolate making over thousands of years. Their goal is to teach people how to make their own high quality chocolate from the hand roasted organic fair trade cacao nibs.

Kruffy Chicken

PRODUCT: Island Gyal Spice

OWNER: Kieron Lennan

Kruffy Chicken is an artisan meat company in Belize, offering a wholesome, easy-to-prepare, and delicious meat option for you and your family. We sell many different types of seasonings and also pre-seasoned meats. This business idea came about after realizing that in many Belizean households, both parents are either busy or away from home for most of the day, so having pre-seasoned and ready to prepare meats would be a much easier option. Growing up, we were taught not to litter and keep our environment healthy, which is why all of our packaging for our products are ecofriendly and our chickens are raised locally by us. We encourage Belizeans to start supporting local business, farmers, markets, fishermen, makers, and packaging solutions that share your values and care for BELIZE, and in the process we can create a better tomorrow, together.

Farah's Feminine Fashions

PRODUCT: Reusable Bag

OWNER: Farah Diva Ken

I live in Belmopan City and sewing has been my passion since I was a teenager. Now I made it my responsibility to study and learn the trade. Approximately after 16 years of working as a Customer Service representative at the Belize Telecommunications Company, sewing was still my favorite hobby. After retirement, I decided to teach sewing at the YWCA in Belmopan, but unfortunately COVID19 sent me home. From there, I decided to keep more busy than ever sewing MASKS! Masks became a high demand so I worked day and night producing masks of different designs , keeping in mind that I must make them safe for protection so I added the designed fabric in front, the filter inside and cotton fabric to touch your skin. Now I have decided to produce other sewing projects such as bags, totes, wristlets, pouches, masks, crossbags, scrunchies, headbands and any other project that can be done with a sewing machine and fabric. Also. I work hard to ensure that all my products are Eco friendly.
