Veco BV is a silverskin onion manufacturer and producer that has been in the business for more than 40 years. We are based in the Netherlands and export our products to more than 30 countries around the world, including Canada, India, France and Germany. Our pearl onions are widely regarded as the best in the world! Veco BV’s silverskin onions are unique because they have been grown with love and care for generations. They are also unique because they are grown in the Netherlands, where there is no shortage of rain and sun. The combination of these factors makes them particularly sweet and delicious.
The silverskin onions, also known as pearl onions or sour pickled onions, are grown in the soil of the Noordoostpolder and then carefully selected by our team of experts before they are taken to the cold store. We are happy to tell you more about how your favorite silver onion is served on your table!
One of our main activities is cultivating and processing silverskin onions, also called sour pickled onions or glazed pearl onions, for the preserving industry. We grow our pickled onions exclusively under supervision of our own staff. The fields are located in the Noordoostpolder, Drenthe and Limburg. We process all glazed pearl onions at our company location in Creil. The product we ship from our plant has been washed, peeled, graded and packed in crates or drums. Any tonnage we cannot supply fresh is preserved in acetic acid. We export the majority of our production. Please find below a detailed overview of how we grow and process our silverskin onions.
