Perfectly Pureed Onions

Let’s talk about puree. 

Our pureed onions are another great addition to the Gills Onions line-up of value-added products. They represent a niche space in our fresh onion offering — but it’s a delicious space. Take a look at how our pureed onions are made and some of the unique ways they can be used in your kitchen. 

Value-Added Onions in a Perfect Puree

Gills Pureed Onions start exactly like the rest of our fresh-cut onion products. Each onion seed is planted and nurtured “The Gill Way” with our signature onion-growing prescription. Those seeds grow into the industry’s best tasting and longest lasting onions. Then, they arrive at our state-of-the-art processing facility, destined to become a perfect puree. 

We puree onions on the first and third Friday of every month. Gills Yellow Onions enter whole and exit as a finely diced puree, packaged with 1.5% citric acid in a 38-pound pail. Every batch of pureed onions is Kosher-certified and gluten-free. Gills Onions’ industry-leading shelf-life extends to our pureed pails. When packaging and storing instructions are followed, the product remains fresh up to 30 days from the date of manufacture. 

Working with the Smooth Taste of Pureed Onions

Pureed onions can be the secret ingredient your recipes have been missing. The pureed form makes the onions easy to combine into a variety of dishes, bringing delicious onion flavor without the crunchy onion texture. 

Use pureed onions to spice up your signature salad dressing or selection of sauces. You can also try adding pureed onions to sausages or hot dogs for a bonus burst of flavor. Pureed onions can serve as an alternative to cream in soups and risottos to make vegan-friendly options or to simply enjoy a bright onion flavor. 

For an upscale feel, season and plate onion puree as a stand-alone dish that accompanies steak, pork, or chicken. 

Life Is Easier and Better with Gills Onions

Gills Pureed Onions eliminate unnecessary labor from your kitchen and save you valuable prep time. You no longer have to fear knife injuries, and you get the value-add of easy storage and a  long shelf life. 

From pureed to whole peeled to diced and sliced, Gills Onions has every type of onion you need to create truly unforgettable dishes. We are onion experts. It’s what we do, and we do it best. But don’t take our word for it. Our onions speak for themselves.

The Gills Industrial Onion Program

Quantity, Quality, and Flavor

When you buy a product by the truckload, you want to know that it’s the very best. At Gills Onions, we work with industrial customers to deliver the very best onions in the industry. We know that industrial operations depend on us to bring them massive amounts of onions with massive amounts of flavor. And, like any onion that goes out of our doors, each piece of an industrial shipment must be fresh. 

Industrial Onions Add Value to Your Operation

Industrial means big. In our case, industrial customers buy big batches of onions, and they see big value in return. Many industrial customers operate seasonally. One of our biggest client segments is the tomato sauce industry. When the summer tomato harvest rolls around, our truckloads of fresh onions roll out. 

Fresh cut onions add value to your operation by eliminating inefficiencies. When you purchase bulk fresh cut onions from Gills, you save in time, labor, and overall costs. One in every three loads of bulk onions is onion waste. That’s wasted inventory, wasted time, and wasted transportation costs. 

Gills Onions offers industrial batches of both whole peeled and diced onions. Our customers benefit from Gills’ industry-leading shelf life. Our industrial diced onion shipments are guaranteed fresh up to 11 days. Whole peeled onion bins stay fresh even longer — up to 18 days after manufacture.

What You Can Do with All Those Onions

Even though our industrial onions arrive in large batches, every piece comes from an onion that was held to the highest individual standards. Our onions are perfectly grown, cleaned, and cut under the watchful eye of expert growers and processors. They arrive to you fresh, flavorful, and ready-to-use. 

So what can you use them for? As we mentioned above, our onions are an essential part of the tomato sauce industry, but they are delicious in other sauces and condiments as well. Some of our industrial customers purchase whole peeled onions and take them to their own processing facilities to create specialty cuts for their own customers. A perfect example is the long, thin slices of onion you find in your favorite fajitas. 

Expand Your Horizons with Gills Onions

Buying in large quantities should never mean compromising on quality. At Gills Onions, we grow, harvest, wash, peel, trim, and cut every onion that arrives at your facility. We lead the industry in safety and quality assurance practices. From seed to shipment, we can confidently say that our onions are the very best. But don’t take our word for it. Our onions speak for themselves.
