The 3 top pizza places on the island were closed last night for lack of Mozzarella. They have not said when they will reopen.
Way to go GOB-you have shot yourself in the foot yet again.

Seems like it is time the good Minister of Tourism get involved. The idiotic price controls and related embargoes go a long way in reinforcing the perception of potential tourists that Belize is a banana republic. At the end of the day, follow the money.

Barnacle: No it is not a rumour. I have spoken to one of the importers who has been affected by this. At least two container loads of dairy products were impounded for several days and eventually released. At least one importer has had to give assurances that no cheeses competing with locally produced cheese would be included in future shipments.This is fact. straight from the cow's (?) mouth. If you pm me I'll tell you who the importer is I spoke with, and you can call them yourself. for obvious reasons they do not want publicity.

LOL, does thatt mean they won't be able to bring fresh cheddar - only aged one?

What kind of Mozzarella are they importing anyways?

OR...... think about how absolutely mobbed with gringo franchises it would be on this island if things were easy and always made sense?
I get frustrated (and then some) with daily stuff like this, but the "Belize factor" has a way of slowing down rampant development a bit without us having to attend meetings or rallies and there are no position papers to read.
My heart does go out to the people who make a living tossing pizza (NOT funny this lack of cheese)- and to those who love eating it (I am one of them).
For those currently experiencing pizza withdrawal symptoms, I recommend the California Red at Blue Water Grill - it has goat cheese (still in the stores) and other lovely stuff and tastes just wonderful!
This too will pass - always does.

But if the local producers know that the GOB will help their business by wiping out all competition, what is to stop them from starting to produce goat cheese or any other cheese for that matter. The whole thing is dumb in my opinion but not surprising.
