Hazera’s Onion Study Tour 2019

Share moments, share success
Last week we organized the 8th Onion Study tour in the Netherlands. Growers, processors and packaging providers from all over the world visited various locations in the Netherlands to learn all about year round export of quality onions. Reflecting the theme ‘share moments, share success’, the participants visited Dutch companies in processing, packaging and exporting onions. They also learned about the use of natural enemies for disease control and how we, Hazera, develop the onion varieties of the future. During the week, we visited interesting onion fields, presenting Hazera’s current commercial range as well as our breeding trials.

Fruitful partnerships
The Onion Study Tour offers our key relations and companies that we were visiting an excellent platform for networking, exchange information and ideas and build fruitful partnerships!
The Onion Study Tour was highly appreciated by all participants, who went home with increased knowledge and new experiences.

Thanks to all our partners for this successful Onion Study Tour 2019. We look forward to welcoming you at one of our upcoming events!

Dutch onion producers can do practically anything. After all, 130 export destinations each require their ‘own’ version of the Holland Onion. Dutch onions can be sorted to an accuracy of half a centimetre with respect to their size and weight. All customary sortings are possible. Pickles (28-40 mm), Small sized (35-50 mm), Middle sized (40-60 mm, 45-65 mm, 50-60 mm and 50-70 mm), Large sized (60-80 mm and Super sized (75-105 mm) are the most common sorting ranges. Within these ranges we can perform very specific additional sorting, using customised sieves.
