In addition to sourcing quality oilseeds for global customers, Richardson is also an active participant in canola seed processing. Richardson owns and operates a fully-integrated canola seed crushing, oil refining and packaging plant in Lethbridge, Alberta as well as a state-of-the-art canola seed processing and canola oil refining facility near Yorkton, Saskatchewan. Both facilities have a combined processing capability of 1.24 million metric tonnes of seed annually for canola oil-based products and high-protein livestock feed.
Richardson Oilseed Limited is working diligently to meet the growing demand for canola oil domestically and internationally. Our Lethbridge plant serves customers in western North America's markets, while the Yorkton facility sends shipments to central and eastern markets in Canada and the U.S. Richardson International's new state-of-the-art canola processing facility near Yorkton, Saskatchewan is a vital link between western growers' crops and the growing consumer demand for healthier foods and cooking oils.
