Cargill Adds Bio-refinery at Clavet

Farmers hauling Cargill’s Specialty Canola Oil canola to Clavet, Sask., will soon see new ground being broken for a first-of-its-kind for Canada edible oil refinery, Cargill recently announced. The world-scale canola oil refinery is slated for a 2014-15 open.

“(The refinery) 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 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, according to Cargill.

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