Onions prices increase

Onions prices increase

As every year at this time, the onion collection 2018 has started in some parts of Spain. The illusion, like every campaign, is based on the harvesting of vegetables that will later go through a postharvest washing process until they are fully presentable to attract the attention of the consumer.

Apart from the prices of the onion in the large chains of distribution, finally the farmers dedicated to the cultivation of onions can see a substantial improvement if we compare it to last year, since the price at source has increased more than 50%.

So the onion breeders of Ciudad Real can sell their vegetables at 30 cents. In this way, the farmers will be able to face the production costs, something that did not happen in 2017, when the kilo of onion was sold at a few cents, to the point of choosing many of them for losing the harvest.

We also make plastic boxes for strawberries and cherries, which have the advantage of being able to use them more often.
