Pacific Coast Canola's Warden processing plant will be able to process Nexera canola, a brand of canola from Dow AgroSciences Canada Inc.
The canola is used in the production of heart-healthy Omega-9 quality canola oil, an oil that has seen growing demand from food processors, according to a news release.
Legumex Walker Inc., which owns 84 percent of Pacific Coast Canola, recently was granted a license from Dow AgroSciences to process and produce and sell the specific brand of canola.
"Partnering with Dow AgroSciences allows us to bring the benefits of Nexera canola to growers in the Pacific Northwest," said Matt Upmeyer, the Warden plant's chief operations officer.
"Growing commodity canola has great agronomic benefits and growing Nexera canola takes that to another level, providing greater potential profitability through higher yields and pricing premiums."
