About Our Company

Company History

Started in 1990 as a small banana port with banana exports via barge to Honduras for transshipment to the United Kingdom.

The Port of Big Creek obtained its Port License in 2002.

The Port is ISPS certified with 4,205 meters of fully buoyed channel entrance and turning basin dredged to 11 meters supported by 618 metres of berth space.

The Big Creek Group of companies are all located in the privately-owned community of Big Creek situated in the Stann Creek District in southern Belize and is made up of Banana Enterprises Limited, Toledo Enterprise Limited (Port of Big Creek) and Belagro Agriculture.

The Group employs 260 Belizeans from the villages and surrounding communities, making the Group the single largest private employer in the south.   

And as one of the largest employers in Southern Belize, the Group understands the dynamics of village life, and is always finding ways to bring about improvement in all areas of work and family life.  

The Group is a beacon of light for southern Belize, an inspiration, a dream becoming a reality and a good Belizean corporate citizen.
