Scoular says it has officially opened its new flax processing facility in Regina — the first flax plant to open in Western Canada in nearly a decade.

The opening coincides with a strong flax market and record high prices for Canadian flax growers.

Scoular’s new facility demonstrates the company’s commitment to  providing marketing  opportunities for Canadian farmers. Scoular and its predecessors have been a partner in the Canadian flax market for more than 30 years.

“Our new facility is a testament to Scoular’s dedication to Canadian producers,” says Drew Fossum, Scoular’s product group manager. “We are committed to providing these growers a competitive market for their flax.”

The facility incorporates technology that enables it to deliver some of the highest purity flax available on the market, says the company. The facility also meets the highest level of food safety standards certified to the rigorous Global Food Safety Initiative benchmarked to the FSSC 22000 standard.

“The facility has outstanding capabilities,” says Fossum. “It further strengthens Scoular’s position as a reliable and consistent supplier of flax to our customers.”

The facility produces whole and milled flax available in the brown or golden categories for a range of applications, including for breads, cereal, bars, snacks, and pasta to oils, supplements, pet food, and livestock feed. The new facility also holds organic certification.
