Hello Brian, each year Belize puts on an Agriculture Fair in Belmopan.... This fair brings in farmers and merchants from around the Country. Keeping in mind that we are a very small country both in population & geography compared to Canada. However, there are some pretty good products grown here. We toured many of the livestock and produce farms before opening the restaurant and really learned a lot about the huge differences in farming from California to Belize..... Climate of course plays a roll a long with a multitude of challenges that California farmers do not face..... Check out this site and maybe you can make some contacts... https://www.facebook.com/natsbelize/
.... Wishing you luck with your research and feel free to send a private message to me with any other questions, hopefully I can put you in touch with people who can help.
