On February 14, 2019, the U.S. Embassy hosted the launch of Marie Sharp’s brand new “Pure Love” pineapple habanero pepper sauce that aspires to combat gender-based violence. The proceeds of the sale of “Pure Love” will go to Haven House–a non-profit domestic violence shelter–directly benefiting victims of gender-based violence and empowering them to take control and positively transform their lives. We are privileged to have inspired this new product that aims to make a positive, durable impact in Belize.
Listen to Chris Nesbitt of the Maya Mountain Research Farm (MMRF) briefly discuss the history of the modern Belizean Cacao industry in this intimate interview. Conducted a few miles up river from the Columbia Village.
