From grower to packaging

Step 1

Unloading

The onions are collected from the farmer and brought to BOWA BV. On arrival, they are weighed and unloaded in the bunker installation. There they can be dried. The onions enter the process from the bunker installation.

Step 2

Processing

The onions are cleaned and the foliage is getting removed.

Step 3

Sorting

The onions are sorted in four different sizes. The different sizes are then sorted by quality. 

Step 4

Packaging

The onions are then packed in packs of 4 to 25 kilograms. On request we can also supply onions in big bags or bulk.

Step 5

Inspecting

Before the onions leave our company, an external consultant will randomly check the onions for the last time.
