Some impressions of onion transport worldwide, where harvest mechanization hasn't arrived yet.
Because of our global reach, we like to share some photos of onion transport in the world, we made visiting clients.
A camel caravan transporting onions from Nigeria (Sokoto) to Niger
Those camels carry two bags of 100 kg each full with onions
Now he must stand up
On their way
Mexico, 30 tons of freshly harvested onion leaving the field
India, trouble with a fully loaded truck with onions
Dominican Republic, this little truck transports the onions from the central mountains to the central market in Santo Domingo (3.5 hour drive)
Somewhere in Central America, even public transport is used to get the onions to the market
China, women preparing the freshly harvested onions for transport to the market
Peru, at the ''alti planos'' (over 3,500 m above sea level) bagging the onions in the field to be transported to the market. It is not un-common finding a farmer in the middle of the road, where he has fainted due to lack of oxygen, with a 50-kg bag with onions lying beside him. One day, we collected 5 of these farmers and gave them a lift to the market. The whole village invited us for dinner. Great experience.
India, loading a truck with onions
Argentina in Patagonia, preparing onions for the market from a ''rustic field storage'' for the market
Mongolia, very high up in the mountains. Onions are placed beside the road in some shade, otherwise they would get damaged by sun burn.
Only the last transport vehicle for onions is globally the same: the supermarket shopping cart.
