Founded in 1969, Belize Brewing Company (BBCo) is a Division of Belize Beverage Company which manages the production and marketing of brewery products, and other ready-to-drink beverages with alcohol.
At its founding, BBCo was deemed a “project with little potential for success” by international brewing experts. Through the vision and perseverance of the Bowen Family, the company grew and thrived. Today via an expanding and evolving portfolio, BBCo continues to respond to the ever-changing consumer desires and offers an assortment of world-class local and international brands.
Leading BBCo’s portfolio is the flagship brand Belikin Beer, a brand that is tightly woven into Belizean culture and heritage and is a favourite among both local consumers and tourists. BBCo’s other local brands include Belikin Stout, Belikin Light, Lighthouse Lager, and other seasonal offerings. Over the past five decades, BBCo has also expanded the portfolio to include well-known international brands found throughout the country; Heineken, Guinness Stout, LandShark, Red Stripe, Smirnoff Ice and Amstel Bright.
Located in Ladyville, BBCo’s state-of-the-art Krones-Steinecker brewery has ample capacity to continue growing along with the demand generated from consumers in other regional markets as the company expands its export footprint
