Brown and red onions

By | Growers, Customers | No Comments

The onion market is in a state of extremes at the moment – a glut of brown onions and a lack of red onions.

Favourable growing conditions in Europe, disappointing export volumes and general decreased demand have led to an abundance of small brown onions throughout Europe. These plentiful stocks of <70mm onions in particular, now need a home before the new crop sets start coming onto the market in the next month or so. Rush Group’s network of international customers, regional offices throughout Europe, and their in-depth product knowledge means they are still capable of finding a home for these surplus brown onions. Therefore, if you are looking for a home for any surplus stocks over the coming weeks, please contact Nat Bacon.

Red onions could not be more different. Current old crop stocks are now severely depleted however any gap in supply has now been averted with fresh arrivals from the Southern Hemisphere and Egypt. The volumes are still small though so supply of red onions is still difficult however thanks to Rush Group’s wide collection of red onion farmers, the Group are still able to supply their customers throughout this difficult period.

If you are looking for a home or looking to buy either brown and/or red onions, contact Nat Bacon.
