Cargill announced plans to construct a world scale canola refinery at its Clavet, Saskatchewan, canola processing facility. The refinery is expected to be completed in time for the 2014-15 canola harvest.

"We are delighted to make this announcement and confirm our commitment to provide food-grade canola oil to Cargill's customers throughout Canada and the United States. It represents the first investment of this kind for Cargill in Canada and is one further step in the creation of Clavet as a major centre for value added processing," says Gonzalo Petschen, president of Cargill's Dressing, Sauces and Oils division. The facility will employ the latest in design for both efficient and food-safe production of canola oil for the North American market."

The Clavet canola crush facility was first built in 1996 and later expanded in 2009. It currently is the largest canola processing facility in Canada and capable of processing 1.5 million metric tonnes per year serving the canola growers of Saskatchewan- Canada's largest canola producing province.

This latest investment by Cargill complements the Cargill specialty canola research facility in Aberdeen and the Cargill AgHorizon farm service centres throughout the Province.

The refinery will add up to 30 additional jobs and boost the total Cargill Clavet complex close to 200 employees.
