7 Benefits

7 Benefits of onions from the Netherlands:

 

1. Year-round availability

The Netherlands is the only country in the world that can offer such a wide variety of onions all year round. 

2. Nature’s best

The fertile, stone-free, lime-rich soil and moderate climate in the Netherlands are perfect for growing healthy onions. 

3. Food safety

Crop monitoring, extensive quality control and safety audits throughout the chain safeguard the production process. Dutch growers are certified by various international bodies so that product safety is ensured. 

4. Tasty

Dutch onions are renowned the world over for firmness, flavour and the many varieties on offer.

5. Sustainability

A system of integrated crop protection is used by Dutch growers to limit the use of crop protection products per kilo of produce. An increasing number of Dutch growers have been awarded the GlobalGAP IFA certificate. This safeguards food safety, sustainability, traceability and the outstanding quality of Dutch onions. 

6. Professionalism

The knowledge and expertise of Dutch onion growers and traders have developed over many years. The sector is also characterised by its high levels of organisation. This makes the Netherlands the preferred business partner for importers and traders.

7. Freshness

Thanks to an efficient distribution system, excellent storage conditions and the vicinity of Europe's main ports, Dutch onions can reach any destination in extremely short transit times.
