The Belize Livestock Producers’ Association (BLPA) is incorporated under the Meats and Livestock Act, Chapter 214 of the Laws of Belize, revised edition 2000. This Act grants, in effect, the legal authority to the BLPA to manage the local livestock industry, and by extension, to work closely with the stakeholders of the industry. For instance, Section 15 (e) of the Act stipulates that the BLPA ought to “provide technical and other information of assistance to members.”
It is on this legal context, therefore, that the BLPA encourages all stakeholders of the local livestock industry to become an active member of the Association, regardless of the size of their farm.
