Aloha! You posted way back then, looks like there is not one around...that will tell you you have to start a health food store...that is the question i was going to ask also...that would be a great business down gardening to sell your produce to the markets and order things from the states....

A number of jungle lodges, such as Blancaneaux, have gardens to supply their own restaurants and many operate more or less organically. There also are a number of small herb and other kichen garden growers who sell in small quantities to restaurants.

Traditional Maya slash-and-burn agriculture was essentially organic and the subsistence farming practiced by Mayas in Belize today remains that way, out of necessity as much as anything (they can't afford expensive fertilizers and pesticides.)

By contrast, the Mennonites, who provide most of Belize's commercial agricultural production, generally rely heavily on chemicals.

I don't know of any true health food/organic stores in Belize, though it's possible there is something in Belize City.

There might be a market for such a business, selling to expats, vacationers and more health-conscious Belizeans (though Belize is the land of fried chicken, potato salad and Fanta). There are four or five areas in Belize that would be markets for this, but these areas are spread out all over the country -- Placencia, El Cayo, San Pedro, Caye Caulker, Belize City and Corozal Town. In a better world, Belize City would be the obvious place to locate, but with the crime situation there your profits would go to pay for armed guards.

Thanks for your reply Lans. I'm interested in A.C. since it's low crime and no cars (cars and pollution really bothers me).Hopefully there's organic supply there and ofcourse I could do some of my own gardening and have stuff shipped.
Getting passport this week!!

There are 2 restaurants on Caye Caulker that specialize in organic foods and cater to vegans. Cindy's Cafe has reopened next to Trends on Front Street and Cocoplum Gardens which is on the back street on the road to the airstrip also specialized in organic and natural food. Both restaurants make their own yoghurt, and Cindy's offers soy milk. Her website address is
I know that Gallon Jug Coffee is not certified organically grown, that both Cocoplum and Cindy's get their organic coffee from a supplier in Melchor, Guatemala. However, now you need an import license and special permit to bring coffee in from Guatemala.
