New canola refinery planned for Saskatchewan
World-scale refinery represents significant investment by Cargill
CLAVET, SASK. – Cargill has announced it will construct a world-scale canola refinery in Clavet, Sask.
Cargill already has a canola processing facility in Clavet, which is capable of processing 1.5 million metric tonnes of canola annually.
With the addition of the new refinery, expected to be completed in time for the 2014/15 canola harvest, Cargill says Clavet will become an integrated canola processing hub for the company and for Saskatchewan. The new facility will add up to 30 additional jobs to the Clavet complex.
The crush facility was built in 1996, and expanded in 2009 to become country’s largest canola processing plant. Cargill also maintains the specialty canola research facility in Aberdeen, Sask., and Cargill AgHorizon farm service centres throughout the province.
