Last weekend’s International Allium Conference in Madison, WI, brought onion experts from multiple production areas around the globe, including the U.S., Russia, Japan and Argentina. OnionBusiness’s Broker Perspective contributor Jason Vee from Vee’s Marketing in Superior, WI, and Robert Bell from Western Onions in Camarillo, CA, attended the event and provided us with two superb photo galleries.
Jason reported the highlight for him was touring Gumz Farms in Endeavor. In addition to the tour, the three-entity conference provided attendees with research findings at the National Allium Research Conference and the International Allium Research Symposium, and the silent auction held during the National Onion Association’s Summer Conference sent a lot of folks home with great memorabilia and fun items. OnionBusiness was pleased to donate a Yeti Backpack Cooler, which was purchased at the auction by Dylan Dembeck with Minkus Family Farms in New York.
