Piet in the USA!

Together with Hazera and some of their international contacts, Piet made a journey to West USA. Hazera is a global leader in the seed industry. The beautiful drive along the coast lead us to leading companies in sustainable production and processing of onions. It was interesting to talk with the local people and other participants about Research and Development and to see how the people work in other parts of the world.  We have met a lot of great companies and interesting people. We would like to thank Hazera for the organization of this study tour!

Flevo Trade visited Senegal and Mauritania

Piet and Ronald visited Senegal and Mauritania last week. They have visited some local farmers and seen some onion fields. By knowing more and more about local cultivation the market becomes less unpredictable. Furthermore it’s always good to visit the markets where the locals sell vegetables and fruit. So far so good, there are a lot of opportunities for the export of onions to West-Africa. Great to see that they really like our Dutch onions and the onions cope so well with the extreme temperatures.

The export in red onions is going well this year. The yields in red onions this year are similar to past years but it is a challenge to find the right quality fields. Red onions are traditionally a niche market. Clients usually have small demands, specific orders and high quality standards. Although the Reds do not create as much volume as yellow onions, it’s a market that has its own unique features that makes us proud to grow and trade Reds.
 
The Reds have grown a lot this year, on average a bit bigger than usual. The big sized onions are finding their way to North
