The fruit and vegetable processing industry in India is highly decentralized. A large number of units are in the cottage/home scale and small scale sector, having small capacities upto 250 tonnes/annum. But big Indian and multinational companies in the sector have large capacities in the range of 30 tonnes per hour or so.
Since liberalisation and withdrawal of excise duty on fruit and vegetable products there has been significant rise in the growth rate of the industry.
Onion is one of the most important commercial vegetable crops grown in India. Both immature and mature bulbs are used as vegetable and condiment. It contains vitamin B and a trace of vitamin C and also traces of iron and calcium. The outstanding characteristic of onion is its pungency, which is due to a volatile oil known as allyl-propyl disulphide. Onions compared with other fresh vegetable are relatively high in food energy, intermediate in protein content and rich in calcium and ribonflavin.
Onion is dried / dehydrated to largely increase its shelf life. Dehydrated onion is used mainly for making soup in Europe and USA
