They are used in almost every cuisine in the world and enjoyed by most who eat them, even if they bring a tear to eyes across the globe. "They" are onions, and at Gills Onions, they are the vegetable that put this Oxnard-based company on the map nearly four decades ago.

Founded in 1983 by brothers Steve and David Gill, Gills Onions is one of the nation's largest, family-owned onion growers and operates one of the largest and most innovative fresh-cut onion processing plants in the world. Whether it's onions for onion rings, red onions for pickling or finely diced white onions, Gills has the onion for you!

With deep roots and a commitment to sustainability, Gills Onions is ensuring the business is around for future generations by becoming an innovator of several environmental programs. The company is known as a pioneer in energy efficiency, water conservation, packaging, recycling, waste prevention and efficient land usage.

 "Sustainability is part of our company's mission, or policy, making sure we're good stewards of the world," Steve said. "We try to recycle as many products as we can through this facility."
