"If you're still cutting onions, it's a Crying Shame!" ™ Founded in 1983, Gills Onions is one of the nation’s largest, family-owned onion growers and operates one of the largest, most innovative and sustainable fresh-cut onion processing plants in the world. In the 1980’s, farming brothers Steve and David Gill were asked by La Victoria, a jarred salsa manufacturer, to provide diced onions for its products. Before then, the only way to wash, skin, slice, and dice onions was by hand in the kitchen. The Gills developed proprietary equipment and processes to peel, slice, dice, and deliver the first fresh-cut onions.
