With the recent developments in the onion and related industries the Onion News Autoworkers Association has decided to step up their game and offer a free internet course to anyone who would like to learn more about this fascinating industry. This association was formed in 2021 to promote farmers, processors and manufacturers of all things related to this intriguing industry and to serve as an outlet for anyone who might want to write or speak on this subject. Its founders have now expanded their services to include information on organic farming, farmers markets, processing, genetics, pesticides and even advice on how to commercialize your business. The great thing about this organization is that it offers its knowledge free to those who wish to get involved in the growing industry. While no formal training is required, most of its members have backgrounds in related fields, and many of them have already succeeded in this business.
The first phase of this plan was to create a website for those interested in the industry. Now the website is in beta stage but already has several sections that will be of great help to anyone looking for information. Some of the sections are informational articles covering all the aspects of the onion industry, and there are also several sections dedicated to current issues and trends. Additionally, there are news flashes and even a forum for anyone wishing to join and ask questions.
Members will also have the opportunity to submit their own articles related to the subject, and they will also be able to publish any photos or stories they might have uncovered while doing research. For those not interested in writing articles, there are plenty of articles available for purchase through the site’s bookstore. The library has a wide selection of books on all topics related to the growers and processors of onions. Those interested can also subscribe to Onion News Autoworkers’ RSS feed so that they are notified each time an article or story is posted.
The primary goal of this organization is to expand awareness of the importance of growers and processors who specialize in this unique and tasty food. Members often speak of their surprise at discovering how much demand there is for this product. Other members often comment that they had never even been involved in such a large-scale industry before. Whether or not the economy is doing well or bad, the marketplace for Cheddar’s products is stable and expanding.
It should be noted that Cheddar’s operates many stores, including national locations in Texas and California. It is also very important to note that the majority of its work is done in-house. The focus is on building relationships with wholesalers, import/export agents, retailers and consumers, and the various types of growers and processors mentioned above.
The company does not import produce from other countries, nor do most of its employees work on an hourly basis. Instead, they are concentrated on each area of the onion growing and processing operation. They have about 400 employees presently, with about 100 of those being in the direct manufacturing side of the business. There are about a dozen sales positions in all, but the bulk of those are held by customer service representatives. Cheddar’s has a strong reputation among onion growers and processor’s worldwide for the quality of its work.
