Dutch growers risk being left with unsold stock at the end of the season

De first organic yellow onions from Egypt have arrived in Holland. The reds are expected in the first week of April

This is what happened last year and the two years before that – stock either not being sold or having to be sold for industrial processing.

Some German clients are already moving into Egyptian organic onions.
