Processing of goods
As soon as they are processed, those products (eg. onions and shallots) are mainly dedicated to food industry.
When products are simply sorted and packed, they are mainly shipped in EU, but also exported outside EU. Our company sorts, grades and packs your products according to your specific needs. We run large storage capacities that allow us to store products for long term periods with specific drying control systems.
Part of our warehouses is refrigerated to ensure long term storage through cooling and peeling products in optimal conditions.
Flandres Oignons is now well known for its expertise, its reactivity, and its high quality products : onions (yellow, red and pink onions, ecological onions), but also shallots, and potatoes. Discover our product range !
