Cargill’s newly expanded canola research facility in Aberdeen, Saskatchewan is poised to lead the way in specialty canola seed breeding, thanks to a $3.5 million investment in new equipment and technology.

Improvements to the facility include a 14,000 sq/ft expansion, expanded pathology lab, new state-of-the-art Quality Assurance lab, ventilated seed prep room and high efficiency LED lighting throughout the facility, with UV repelling windows.

“The new facility will also allow Cargill to showcase the research and innovations within our specialty canola business,” says Mark Christiansen, Managing Director, Cargill Global Edible Oil Solutions. “Innovations such as a new low saturated high oleic canola oil are driven by our VICTORY® yield platform, which is currently best-of-class for Roundup Ready hybrids, in addition to best-of-class Blackleg resistance.”

“Saskatchewan continues to be an important province for Cargill to invest in – we have 26% of our Canadian investment in the province, and over the past five years have continued to increase our footprint with over $300 million in capital investments. Cargill employs over 450 employees in the province of Saskatchewan, with six businesses across 20 locations.”
