Growing of onions : a league of their own

The West-Friesland and surrounding area’s soil lends itself perfectly for the growing of vegetables, similarly for onions. Sijm agro bv grows about 20 ha of onions.

 

Sorting and reading of the onions

For the sorting of onions we make use of a so-called “de-tailer”,  its three knives remove the tail of the onion. Besides we make use of an excellent exhaust system, as good extraction is of paramount importance while processing onions.
Following the sorting the product is read, which means that bad onions are being discarded.
After this procedure the product is packed in crates or wrapped entirely according to the client’s wishes.
If the potatoes or onions have the same size it is possible to read the products instantly. In that case the sorting phase is skipped and the onions move on directly to the conveyor belt where the bad onions are removed. Obviously this method is faster and as a consequence more efficient.

 

Packaging

The onions can be packed into 10 – 25 kg bags, big bags or pool crates (recyclable packing) sizes
40-60-50-70, 60-80-75-105 and 80-100.
