Home grown

The aim for top quality starts with the cultivation and the buying of the onions. A part of the onions, we grow ourselves with the biggest care. The other part we buy with growers who are carefully selected based on strict quality requirements. 

Entry check

The onions who are delivered into Roussel-Lietaer undergo a thorough entry check. Different factors are checked, smell, size, color, … Based on this entry check, the onions can be approved for the production.

Cooling before peeling

Before the automated peeling process begins, the onions are refrigerated to 4°C.

Peeling

The actual process of peeling takes place in specially equipped spaces. Roussel-Lietaer BVBA has peeling lines for mechanical peeling. After peeling mechanically, the onions are inspected visually.

Cutting

The process of efficiently chopping the onion in rings, pieces or cubes requires extensive product knowledge. For this, the company developed an innovative process. In this process, quality and hygiene come first.

Packing

The onions are packed on different kinds of automated lines, which enables packaging ranging from 100 grammes up to 25 kilogrammes.

Order

Finished products are put in the cooling area, per client. Orders are produced day A for delivery day B. Before the order leaves the company, it is checked one last time on quality, cut and quantity.
