The Netherlands is an international centre of horticultural and agricultural expertise. Seed companies, growers, packaging centres and traders often come from families that sometimes have hundreds of years of intensive experience in the cultivation and processing of agricultural crops. Knowledge, expertise and entrepreneurship are passed down from father to son and basically form an integral part of our Dutch genes.
In addition, the Netherlands has world renowned agricultural expertise institutes, such as Wageningen University & Research Centre (Wageningen UR), various agricultural colleges and private expertise organisations. This means the Dutch onion has a very favourable ratio of harvest yield per hectare to cultivation costs. As a result, top quality can be supplied worldwide all year round, at competitive prices.
