Welcome to Poton Overseas B.V., the worldwide exporters of dutch onions, dutch potatoes and general foods.

On this website we would like to give you some background on the following items:
- The Poton Organization
- The activities of the Poton Organisation
- The importance of the Poton quality control system
- Where and how to find and contact us


The Poton organisation is a specialized export company of Dutch onions and potatoes.

Specialization is this field can only be achieved through a close co-operation between and guidance of
farmers and packing stations on one hand
and trucking and shipping companies on the other hand.

This, in a nutshell, is exactly what our staff has been doing for the last 3 decades.
In this period a lot of valuable knowledge has been collected and you can benefit of this available knowledge
regarding shipments of perishable goods like onions and potatoes by vessel to overseas' markets like
South East Asia as well as to West Africa and the Caribbean.


Besides the export of onions and potatoes, which is still our main line,
we have developed the trading of general foods, especially to the West African markets, for example:
fresh eggs, vegetable cooking oil, soft drinks, salt, sugar, wheat flour, milk powder,
and many other articles in which fresh fruits and vegetables have a very special place.

Furthermore, we have our own imports of Chinese garlic,
so that we are able to market this article in a, for our clients, commercially attractive way.

The advantage of this diversification of products is that our clients can make
a combination of these articles in one container, thus benefitting of a lower seafreight.


On onions and potatoes, Poton has 2 quality control systems.

One is during the procedure of being graded and packed which is the so-called packing inspection,
and the second is the so-called pre-shipment inspection during which not only the quality is checked again,
but also the weight, packing, and number of packaging.

In this way, you can rest assured that all necessary precautions have been taken to enable you to receive upon arrival
exactly the quality you have ordered.

Our quality control is far stricter than the standard quality control which is conducted by the Dutch Governmental Inspection Boards.
This same quality control system is applied for the fruits and vegetables shipments.
