World production of citrus fruit has experienced continuous growth in the last decades of the XX century. Oranges constitute the bulk of citrus fruit production, accounting for more than half of global citrus production in 2004. The rise in citrus production is mainly due to the increase in cultivation areas and the change in consumer preferences towards more health and convenience food consumption and the rising incomes.
Our Fruit Logistics Department is constantly working in unison with the Belize Citrus Growers Association year round to ensure maximum fruit production and quality from year to year.
Citrus Products of Belize Ltd has strategically maintained a share of the Belizean citrus industry fruit supply, averaging around 20% since 2000, by way of its own groves planted in the salubrious Stann Creek Valley and the Cayo District
To ensure the highest standards of quality, we have adopted the International Quality Management System standard of ISO 9001:2000 incorporating HACCP.
At CPBL, we are constantly investing in cutting edge technology in our factories to process our growers' citrus fruits in the most efficient manner.
