Cargill Inc. broke ground July 19 on its new $350 million canola-processing facility in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, Biobased Diesel Daily confirmed with a representative of the company.

Cargill first announced the project in April 2021.

The new facility is projected to have an annual production capacity of 1 million metric tons and will support the growing global demand for canola products.

The new Regina facility will be Cargill’s second canola- processing facility in Saskatchewan and third in Western Canada.

“We’re excited to be building a new state-of-the art canola-processing facility in Regina,” 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 across Saskatchewan access the increasing market demand.”

Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe added, “Our government is grateful for Cargill’s investment in Saskatchewan and further supporting sustainable supply chains around the world. The investment will enhance our agricultural sector profile by bringing welcome jobs and increased value-added production, and bolster Saskatchewan’s position of becoming a global canola-crush powerhouse.”

Cargill anticipates the project to be completed by 2024.
