Filipinos want government to use up red onion supply before importing white onions

Yesterday, a group of Filipino of onion farmers has urged the government to delay importing white onions to address a shortage, saying there was still enough supply of red onions to meet demand.

Luchie Ceña, manager of the Valiant Cooperative in Nueva Ecija, has said that the next harvest of white onions would come by the first quarter of 2023. But she cautioned against opting to import to tide over the supply, saying: “We’re not against importation if it is really necessary. Our only request is that it be small, limited to what’s needed. If it’s possible, we hope that we don’t import since alternative solutions are gradually coming up, with red onions replacing white onions.”
