Business Updates

Excerpts from the 12/24 Packer article by Abraham Mahshie

Construction on the Brooks Tropicals' new headquarters in Belize has been pushed back slightly from February to March because of Hurricane Dean.

Brooks is also installing a custom-built-papaya-packing machine at the facility that will allow the company to triple the volume it had before the storm.

"We're really committed to growing papayas in Belize and committed to growing this business in the future," Mary Ostlund, director of marketing said.
