Fodor's Review

You can visit the source of one of Belize's few well-known exports, Marie Sharp's Hot Sauce, made in about a dozen different heat levels from Mild to Beware. The small factory, with about 25 workers, established and still run by Marie Sharp and family, is open to interested visitors weekdays, but for a tour it's best to call in advance. Besides the factory tour, you can also see the entire selection of products manufactured by Marie Sharp, and most are offered for sale along with Marie Sharp T-shirts and tote bags. Her products are sold in nearly every grocery in Belize and are on tables in most restaurants in Belize. Marie Sharp's main office is in Dangriga, where there also is a small shop.
