Saskatchewan has sold $38 million in land, 247 acres in all, at the Global Transportation Hub (GTH) for Cargill’s planned canola crusher, reports the Regina Leader-Post.

Jeff Vassart, president of Cargill Canada, said in a news release last August the location would give farmers easy access for deliveries, as well as allow the company to efficiently deliver agricultural goods to end-users.

"We are confident in the continued growth and competitiveness of the canola processing industry and look forward to helping farmers access increasing market demand,” said Vassart.

“Through these projects, we’re committed to providing a better, more efficient customer experience across our network, making it easier to do business with Cargill.”

Cargill first announced plans to build a new $350-million canola processing facility in Saskatchewan in April 2021.

At the time the company did not have a specific location picked, but said the state-of-the-art crusher facility would be located within an hour of Regina.

The facility is expected to create 50 full-time jobs and process one million metric tonnes of seed each year. Cargill expects the crusher to be operational by early 2024.
