Cargill confirms location of its new canola processing facility
Cargill unveils the location of its new canola processing facility. Cargill has selected land in the Global Transportation Hub area, west of Regina, Sask., as it offers excellent highway and rail infrastructure. Given its location outside of the city, Cargill anticipates the construction process to cause minimal disruption to Regina area residents.
“The location of Cargill’s new facility will give canola farmers easy access for their deliveries, and in turn, allow Cargill to efficiently deliver grain, oil and meal to end-use customers,” said Jeff Vassart, president of Cargill Canada. “We see strong potential in the growth and competitiveness of the canola processing industry and look forward to helping farmers access the increasing market demand.”
Cargill plans to begin construction on the project as soon as possible once appropriate approvals are received, with plans to be operational by early 2024. As previously announced, the new processing facility will have a similar design to Cargill’s existing Camrose facility and is projected to have an annual production capacity of 1 million metric tonnes.
