Belize Estate

BELIZE ESTATE CO., LTD., formerly known as BELIZE ESTATE & PRODUCE CO., LTD. was incorporated in 1875 in the United Kingdom.

Over the years, B.E.C. (as it is widely known) was involved in logging/saw-milling, in harvesting of chicle, and insurance. In the height of the logging season, it employed some 1, 000 workers and operated its own sawmill and lumber yard. At one time, the company was the largest land owner in Belize. Over the years various portions of the land were distributed and a large parcel was donated to Programme for Belize, a company involved in land conservation.

Unfortunately, due to high production costs, it has ceased its logging/saw-milling and chicle operations.

These lines are members of the CAROL and NSC Group, with services from Europe, Far East, North America, South America, Oceana and the Caribbean. Services provided by our Shipping Dept. include agents for container ships, break bulk services, bulk ships, namely, sugar exported in bulk, tankers, tug services, stevedoring, bunkering and barge rental.
