Oilseed processors dropping weekly crush report


It’s going to be harder to find current information on Canadian canola and soybean processor demand going forward.

In the “COPA weekly report of member crushings” published on Friday, the Canadian Oilseed Processors Association says it is immediately discontinuing the report.

The weekly update shared information on the total tonnes of canola and soybeans crushed by COPA members, as well as percentages on crush capacity utilization.

“COPA has streamlined industry priorities and identified publication of the Weekly as a lower priority for its members,” executive director Chris Vervaet tells RealAgriculture. “COPA’s priorities will continue to focus on promoting the growth and competitiveness of the industry in Canada.”

The Canadian Oilseed Processors Association says this will be its final weekly report.

COPA says data on canola crushing will still be found in Statistics Canada’s monthly Report of Crushing Operations. COPA will also continue to update annual/monthly crushing statistics on its website.

COPA’s members include ADM, Bunge, Cargill, Louis Dreyfus, Richardson and Viterra.
