Promotion Activity & Donations

The NOA is dedicated to promoting and educating consumers, retailers, and foodservice professionals about bulb onions and their many uses. Since 1982, when the NOA started a promotion program, per capita consumption of onions has increased over 70% according to the USDA.

Funded through voluntary donations, the program continues today, thanks to the monetary support of onion growers, shippers, and brokers throughout the industry.

The NOA's promotion program has two main goals:

  1. Increase onion usage in consumer and foodservice channels nationwide
  2. Generate as much publicity and awareness about onions, to produce the best return on the dollars donated to the program

The NOA encourages voluntary contributions from its members at $0.01 (one cent) per hundredweight. All growers, shippers, and brokers are asked to participate by sending their donation payable to the NOA.


Legislative/Regulatory Advocacy - A Voice for the Industry

The National Onion Association is committed to providing a unified voice for the United States dry bulb onion industry on national legislative, regulatory, trade, and environmental issues of importance. The preservation and profitability of U.S. onion farms and processors, marketing enterprises, and allied supplier businesses is a primary goal.

The Association has a long history of engaging the American political process. This is accomplished via discussions with political leaders on lobbying trips to Washington D.C., by written and digital correspondence with appropriate responsible parties, and by engaging grass-roots efforts to inform, educate, and persuade elected and appointed officials, as well as government career professionals regarding issues affecting the dry bulb onion industry.

Past Advocacy Activity

  • 2005-2009 Lobbied for Specialty Crop Research Initiative.
  • 2003 protected the industry from being included in a deadly hepatitis outbreak linked to Green Onions.
  • 1995-2005 Negotiated a ten year phase out of the tariff for U.S. onion imports in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

Moving challenges forward with satisfactory resolution in mind, is the ambition of these activities. The National Onion Association is proud of its success in representing the diverse and varied interests of U.S. onion growers by exercising a significant role in influencing government policy and actions that directly affect opportunities to compete domestically and internationally.
