With a global annual crop of over 85 million tons, the onion is one of the most commonly grown vegetables. This figure is set to rise even further. In 1990 27 million tons of onions were harvested world-wide, while this figure has more than tripled in 2015! (Source: FAOstat)

Currently, the Netherlands has approximately 34,000 hectares of seed and onion sets and holds 10th position on the global list of onion growing countries. However, in terms of global export, the high-quality Holland onion is the undisputed market leader, holding a great 20% market share! This means the Holland onion truly holds a top position in the world. (Source: COMTRADE, United Nations)
