British Onion Crop

British Onion Crop

The U.K. is both our base and origin of the company. We work with a small group of 11 onion growers on a programmed basis, producing Brown and Red Onions, shallots and echalions for season long supply.

The best soils throughout Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk are selected 6 months in advance of planting to ensure the high quality requirements of our customers can be met.

New varieties of directly planted seeds and sets are constantly trialled and reviewed to produce the longest season offer possible in the most cost effective way.

A range of storage facilities have been developed over the years ranging from low cost bulk ambient, to state of the art box refrigerated stores for a full season supply.

We are not traders and instead work hard with growers in both the UK and around the world with whom we have long standing relationships to produce products with a known outlet before the first seed is sown.

At the same time we strive to provide flexibility for growers and customers to enable ever changing requirements to be met.

Preparation of onions for sale by size grading and defect removal is carried out either on-farm, by the customer where desired or by Mason Brothers located near Boston in south Lincolnshire. Mason Brothers also transport most of our product in the UK from farm to customer and via their grading facilities.
