Hot Mama’s Belize Ltd. is an agro-processor and manufacturer that produces premium quality products, while working closely with small farmers and farmer groups to ensure a consistent supply of high-quality produce. Native-born Belizean, Wilana Oldham, founded the Company in 2008. She and her husband moved back to Belize with the intention of producing a habanero pepper jelly but instead ended up doing fresh pepper shipments into the USA. The Company is presently re-branding the existing line of products under the name of “Aunt Sadie’s Belize.”
