Cargill expands canola research facility

August 31, 2016 - Cargill’s canola research facility in Aberdeen, Sask. has undergone a facelift after a $3.5 million investment in new equipment and technology.

Improvements to the facility include a 14,000 sq. ft. expansion, a larger pathology lab, a new quality assurance lab, ventilated seed preparation room and high efficiency LED lighting throughout the facility, with UV repelling windows.

“The new facility will allow Cargill to showcase the research and innovations within our specialty canola business,” says Mark Christiansen, managing director, Cargill Global Edible Oil Solutions.

Cargill says Saskatchewan continues to be an important province for the company to invest in, saying that 26 per cent of its Canadian investment is in the province.
