What Is Onion Grading?
Onion Grading is the checking and sorting of onions. This consists of standing stationery indoors for long periods of time. Onions are presented on the conveyer belt in front of you, as it moves past you at waist height. The conveyer belt is constantly moving past at all times, you are expected to keep pace with the conveyer belt while you sort onions into categories such as waste and size requirements. Full training is provided.

- Safe work systems and culture.

Ongoing work is an option for those who show they are open minded, committed and reliable.
