Belize: 60,000 pounds of onions imported weekly
BMDC imports onions for retail sale. Producers who need onions for processing, such as making sauces, import separately.
Most shoppers like the yellow-skinned onions, and they are purchased at an average size of 50 millimeters by 70 millimeters (roughly 2 to 3 inches) from Holland, where Marin said yellow onions of better quality are available at a good price.
Marin denied reports of a ban against importation of yellow onions from Mexico, where that variety of onions comes in much larger sizes. He said that the larger mauve and white onions are imported from Mexico. Marin said that Mexican prices fluctuate a lot.
Local onions should be available on the market in January, and Marin said that a team from the BMDC and the Ministry of Agriculture should be visiting farmers starting the first week of January to check on the quantity of local production, and also, to get an idea how soon they will be available on the market. This will help them to determine when to stop importing from Holland. Importing will resume when the local supply of yellow onions ends, he explained.
An official at the Ministry of Agriculture informed us last week that they had just approved a request from the BMDC to import 65,000 pounds of onion from Holland.
