Cargill Plans Crush Plant for Camrose, Alta.

Cargill announced plans today to build a canola processing facility near Camrose, Alberta. Subject to receiving all required approvals, construction is expected to be completed in time for the 2014-15 canola harvest.

This is the second major announcement for Cargill in the past few months. The company announced the addition of a food-grade bio-refinery to its Clavet, Sask., crush facility last month.
