Wiskerke Onions delivers the highest quality onions worldwide. Grown on fertile Dutch ground, harvested by the best growers and dried under optimum conditions. We export to more than 95 countries to end up ultimately where it is truly appreciated: on the consumer's plate.
As soon as the onions are harvested, they are dried and sorted according to size, colour and quality. Each onion is scanned inside and outside with a special infrared laser. Only the very best onions pass the selection. Containers laden with onions are then shipped to no less than 95 different countries via the ports of Vlissingen, Antwerp and Rotterdam.
Export volume continues to grow. The Netherlands exports more than one billion kilos of onions every year. As the market leader, we have a substantial share in this. The reason why there is so much demand is because the Netherlands is the only country that can grow, store and process onions all year round. As a sector, we can easily meet the large volumes for countries in Asia, Africa and the Americas due to the proximity of the ports and our local port in Vlissingen, as well as the competitive rates for container transport.
