Onions though strong on the outside, are quite delicate inside. You don’t really need a storage rack to keep onions in your kitchen, unless you need to store them for a long time. You don’t need to refrigerate onions, all you need to do is make sure you keep them in a well-ventilated place. Things are, very different when you are storing tonnes of onions or you need to transport them.

Onions are damaged very easily when you put a lot of them together. Onions need space and so when transporting them, wooden onion boxes are the ideal way to move them from one place to another.

Let’s have a look at some of the advantages that wooden onion boxes have over other storage and transport options.


  • Wooden boxes are firm, sturdy and easy to transport
  • Wooden boxes are reusable, you can repair them and use them for years
  • Compared to sacks and nets, they have a greater efficiency
  • They offer optimum ventilation ensuring your onion produce is protected
  • Wooden boxes are resistant to weather changes and protect the onions inside from moisturel

When selecting wooden boxes for your onion crop, you should also keep these ideas in mind:

  • It’s important to invest in quality wooden onion crates – untreated wood is susceptible to fungal infection
  • Disposal of wooden crates after years of use can pose a problem
