Nuseed has entered into an agreement with Archers Daniels Midland Co. (ADM) for crushing and processing of its proprietary omega-3 canola in the U.S.
Omega-3 canola is a genetically modified canola that produces long-chain omega-3 oil at levels similar to that of wild fish. The oil is thought to improve human health.
Nuseed has developed two propriety omega-3 canola oil products — Aquaterra, for the fish feed ingredient market; and Nutriterra, for the human food ingredient market.
The company anticipates the first scaled crush of the omega-3 canola harvested by Montana and North Dakota contract growers will occur in the second quarter of 2020.
It did not identify which plant will process the oil. Several plants may eventually be involved in crushing the canola.
“This agreement ensures the highest level of stewardship is maintained from production on-farm through to processing into oil for end-use markets,” according to a statement from Brent Zacharias, Nuseed group executive.
There is strong interest in the products from aquaculture feed and human food manufacturers, he said.
“ADM provides the oil processing capabilities and industry-leading standards we’ll need to scale up and serve these new end-use markets,” said Clint Munro, Nuseed omega-3 supply chain lead.
