by | Oct 16, 2023


Onions 52, Inc. announces plans to expand operations to the east coast; with a packing and distribution facility in Cincinnati, Ohio set to be fully operational beginning early 2024. With existing FOB shipping locations in Utah, Washington, Idaho, Oregon, Texas, and New Mexico, the expansion will better serve east coast retailers and foodservice partners.

Onions 52, a vertically integrated onion supplier grows, packs, and ships all varieties of onions 52 weeks a year – ensuring there is a never a week without onions. While some companies focus on many different commodities, Onions 52 focuses on one thing, onions, and does it the very best.

Shawn Hartley, President of Onions 52 shared, “This is a very exciting milestone for Onions 52, and we have been waiting for the opportunity to expand east for a long time. The location and timing are ideal, and this is an investment for our customers and growers.” Hartley continued, “We value our quality, consistency, and service to our retail and foodservice partners, and the new facility will allow for tremendous opportunities to help support our east coast customers.”
