ABOUT - PLACENCIA PRODUCERS COOPERATIVE SOCIETY LIMITED
We are a legally registered cooperative headquartered in Placencia Village in southern Belize. We are the top national producer of premium quality edible red seaweeds (seamoss) in southern Belize. We have exported small batches of seaweed to U.S.A and Australia over the past 6 months and are expanding production to further increase export quantities, particularly for the health food sector. Our product currently commands a premium price of between US$10.00-15.00 per pound versus Asian competitors US$1.00-2.00 per pound. Our production model is not only financially sound but is also socially beneficial and environmentally sustainable and has significant growth potential. Our organization also plans to expand to include oyster mariculture in the next 12-18 months.
