Grading by size
Onions are available in a range of sizes:
35-50 mm, 40-60 mm, 45-65 mm, 50-70 mm, 60-80 mm, 65-85 mm, 70-90 mm, 80-100 mm.
Union sets are available from the end of July to the beginning of September. These should not be stored for long periods.
Onion seeds have a longer viability, making them more suitable for storage, and are available from September to July.
Thanks to optimal storage methods it is possible to retain the high quality of the fresh product throughout the whole year, enabling year round availability. A relatively high dry-weight content and protection by the tough outer skin are also reasons why onions can be transported over large distances without any appreciable loss in quality. Quality is principally determined by colour, skin integrity, hardness and soundness. It goes without saying that Dutch onions comply with all national and international standards as regards food safety, hygiene and environmental concerns.
Onions can be packed in any quantity from 1kg to bulk, in polynet sacks or banded bales with a neutral label. In certain circumstances it may be possible to develop an exclusive label in conjunction with the contractor. Please feel free to contact us for information or to discuss this option. We will be happy to help.
