Picking Red Chilies
Azim Khan Ronnie – BANGLADESH
Thousands of bright red chili peppers are harvested in the hot sun before being sorted ready to be delivered to spice companies in Sariakandi, Bogura, Bangladesh. More than 2,000 women work in almost 100 chili farms in Bogura in Bangladesh to supply local spice companies with chilies for use in their recipes. Chili peppers are a major part of the Bengali cuisine popular in Bangladesh and are used as part of a combination of spices for various meat dishes, including chicken and beef.
